Q regarding draining condensate from condensing boiler

What are the options for discharging the condensate beside having a drain pipe connected to a drain?

I do not have a drain in my basement, but I do have a port on my big drain pipe where washer drains to. The port is about 3 feet above the floor level. So an option would be to have a sump pump taking care of it, but it seems a bit of an overkill, plus the port is far away from possible boiler location.

Are there any other options? What is the typical amount of condensate say per day/week?

You should also plan on a neutralizer. Can be purchased, or make your own from PVC pipe and fittings and use marble chips from the garden center.
