I seem to have an overactive sump. Last year there was an empty lot next to my house. My builder raised my sump because it was running almost constantly. This year I installed sod and a small sump drainage area. There are two weeping tiles and a perferated tube connecting them (photos linked below).
There has been no rain, no watering but the drainage area remains full. I moved my sump hose to a back corner of my yard and now my neighbors yard and my sump drainage area are flooded. My sump is not running all the time.
The way I see it is I have two options.
- Raise the sump again.
- Extended my sump hose another 80 feet and drain it onto the street. Along my driveway I have 2 feet of black granite trim then grass. If I extend the hose I plan to dig up a small line of granite, place the hose in this dug out then every 6 to 8 inches drill/cut holes into the hose to make it perferated.
I am not sure which path to take. At this point I have given up on the sump drainage area as extending this will cost more than I am willing to pay at this time. I'm hoping someone can give me a better idea of how to proceed.
Thanks in advance! photos
