I am installing a sump pump well in basement. From the well i would like to drive into the earth horizontally a drain pipe to remove excess water under the concrete floor. Would a hard white PVC pipe work for this application. Would it get water from the surrounding earth?
Absolutely not...I've never seen anything like what you want to do in the 25 years I've been waterproofing basements. Perforated PVC pipe needs to be at least buried in gravel and preferably a filter fabric too. Check out the video on home pagee.
