Using a laundry drain for a utility sink? : HomeImprovement

TLDR: can I use a pump like in this picture but connect it into a stand pipe drain?

I have a second laundry hookup in my garage that I want to use for a utility sink. The standing drain pipe knockout is 38” from the garage floor. Since the garage floor is a couple feet lower than the main house floor, it doesn’t look like I can run a drain that would be low enough to use directly from the utility sink. I’m thinking of using a pump (like a Liberty 404) to reach the existing stand pipe. Is that reasonable? And if so, how should I connect the two? From what I’ve read, the connection at the stand pipe should be indirect to allow for airflow. Can I use a washing machine drain hose from the pump to the stand pipe or should I use full pvc (allowing for indirect somehow)? Thanks for the help!
