A Unique Sump Pump Drain Solution
Sump Pump Drain Solution
A client of mine has a house with no gutters. The problem with not having gutters is that all of the roof run off drains against the houses foundation walls and usually finds it’s way back into the house. Exterior drainage for a sump pump was an issue and we needed to come up with a A Unique Sump Pump Drain Solution.
When building this house the builder installed two French Drains around the perimeter of this house. One drain [shallow depth] was installed on the outside perimeter to carry the roof run off and drain it away from the house.
The other was installed under the basement floor and at the foundation wall footing. This pipes job was to deal with ground water.
Splash Block Prevents Grass Blockage
Once we were able to locate the outlet we exposed it and created a splash block to prevent the grass from over taking it again and also remind the landscaper not to run it over with his mower.
