I have been getting a lot of water pooling on my attached garage floor. the drain would be 18 feet or so from the house.
I was thinking that I would cut out a 6'X6' square and bury a 55 gallon drum with holes in it and filled with big rocks. Then pour new concrete sloping toward a new floor grate over the barrel burried under my garage floor. I live in minnesota so I think that the bottom of the barrel should be at least 5 feet down.
Does this make sense. Am I missing any important issues? Thanks for your help
