For our drain we just cut off a 45 gallon plastic oil drum in half or so then ran a gravity pipe just under the cement to an old holding tank outside. That way you don't have to worry about a sump trying to pump out the pit with gravel and crap in it. We pump our holding tank out each fall but we don't wash inside so it's only minimal water. Can't remember how much slope we put on our floor, but wish it had been a little more maybe, have a couple spots where the water lays. Don't put your drain right in the middle of the floor either like we did, I would recommend at the front or back, in the middle seems to be in the way a fair bit.
Nice looking shop by the way!
It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
