Can you hook a garden hose to a sump pump?

There are either a 1-1/2′′ or a 1-1/4′′ outlet for the sump pumps. Don't use a garden hose because the discharge tubing size should match this. Undersized discharge tubing can cause the pump to run longer each time it turns on, decreasing the life of the pump.
