That sounds sort of like the system I have designed for my boat. There was previously a foot pump operated "salt water rinse"(which was disconnected for maintenance but never reconnected). The sink is below the water line so drains into a bucket. My plan is to have the sink drain into a sump and use the foot pump (via a Y-valve) to empty the sump. I also plan to have ice melt drain into the sump, but because cold air also drains down hill there will a simple water trap so only water goes into the sump.
