I currently have 2 - 1/3 hp sumps in my pit (24" deep by 15" wide) and I have flooded my basement 4 times when the rains are heavy. I want to know if I make the pit bigger or bore an adjacent pit will it help my issue. and/or......When it's really bad the water does not come only form the pit it comes in through the cove, wall/floor all around. I am in a very high water table area, but due to the weirdness of my house, I receive all the adjacent houses run off. I am the funnel. So......I have buried my gutters, I evacuate the water to a 3 foot dia storm drain, I just need to get the water out of here faster I feel. I want the biggest baddest sump to do this for me, because when it storms it runs forever and for 3-4 days afterwards usually.
No announcement yet.
