I only saw maybe 2-3 ft of the black tube only. Nothing unusual. No mesh, no holes. Previously the sump pump discharges into a PVC pipe which connects to this black tube just on the outside of the house. This black tube then goes into the ground. I only realized it goes under the tree after the guys came out to dig it out. We initially thought this black tube goes to some PVC pipe which taps into the storm drain.
This company snaked it initially and didn't get more than 4-5 ft. Not sure why we all assumed it is connected to the storm drain
Wasted a a few hundred bucks paying them for a job they didn't really do since they were out with a little tractor (not sure what it is called) and 2 guys who were onsite for 4 hours while waiting for the city inspector.
Anyway, I assume the company I hire to do the install will know to do the water table test to make sure it is feasible. I suspect there's already an existing dry well somewhere in front of the property. The black tube can't just go underground to no where. But since they can't snake it past 4-5ft, not sure if it is worth trying to find it.
The house was built in 85. I bought it in 01. This happened around 05 time frame. The neighbor next door who has been there since the houses were built said there wasn't any issue previously. So, I assume the black tube and whatever it is connected to is doing its job for a good many years.
But I'm having a hard time finding contractors. For drywell install, do I contact plumbing/sewer or landscaping guys?
