Besides, what kind of outlet does a sump pump use?
There is no NEC requirement for GFCI protection for a sump pump. The 2008 NEC removed the exception for 120 volt non-GFCI receptacles in dedicated spaces in garages and unfinished basements. If the location of the sump pump *receptacle *requires GFCI protection then you must have GFCI protection.
Furthermore, does a dehumidifier need a dedicated circuit? Your dehumidifier requires a dedicated GCFI protected outlet for proper installation. In these cases, your dehumidifier may cause the GCFI to "trip" and you may need to have a dedicated outlet installed after our installation.
