Default Washing Machine Waste Line?

Does anyone have a good comment for a washing machine drain line being plumbed to the exterior ground rather than the septic or sewer?

Yes repair , not being smart here but it should be plumbed to the system.
Check with your local authorities if it is allowed i would say it is not.

No greywater system. I know it needs to be plumbed to the septic system. I was just looking for a comment with a good explanation of why. I've got it now, though. Thanks.

Not as bad but made me picture pumping the ejector pump out next to the sump.
Speaking of which is what should be used if this is the sump they are provisioning.
