I am going to be buying and installing my plumbing here soon so I can get things up and running. The first picture is my diagram and the second is a shopping list at HD of what I would need. If anybody can find a way for me to cut a corner and save some cash, PLEASE let me know?

Okay I didn't have to add those IMG's at the beginning and at the end.

Are you planning on reducing the drain from 1.5" to .75"?

Yes but it is the return end near the top where it gets reduced.

So the return, or the drain will be reduced??

Eliminate some of your 90 elbows by running the overflow lines at an angle to your sump. Here’s a picture that shows what I’m talking about.

And, by the way, the “img” is correct with the exception of the last one must include a back-slash with it….”/img”

Here’s your pic of your plan:

Yes the Return line will be reduced and the drain will not be. My return pump is a 3/4" outlet and the hole I drilled for the return is a 2 3/8" hole that was originally drilled for my overflow and it didn't work so had to change that.

You know I never thought of that, at this point from the overflow elbow that might not be feesable because I had set those in with teflon tape and they are pretty solid, I checked last night and it was a pain to even try but I am sure if I wanted to I could try and move it. Something to look into but thank you for the idea.

It looks like you'll be running 2 drains. I would do a herbie style drain and would not run the durso style drains. I would also eliminate the elbows going into the sump from the drains. If you use 45s you'll have a slightly smoother transition into the sump.
