The sump and barrel idea will work so long as the barrel is buried in the earth, below ground level.

Or, (also outside the box thinking)

The grey water gravity drains, to a barrel or holding tank. But it sits on a platform, that can be raised using a 'cheap' harbor freight hydrualic jack; when your going to empty it, just jack it up, so gravity will drain it to the macerator pump? So, buy a sump pump, or buy a hydraulic jack? Whichever is cheaper, easier, more do-able.Jim

Thanks so much for your reply. I think the thing to do is just what you said, maybe put in a grey water outlet. If you see of anybody whos done this I sure would appreciate the help.

Thanks again.
