hello, I recently had some decorative concrete curbing/edging installed along my entrance concrete walkway and now the water puddles up when it rains heavy. There's no other way to get rid of the water so I installed a 1" channel drain in the walkway and fed it through a 1" pipe to a buried 5 gallon bucket that I drilled holes in and put crushed stone around.
i think this is called a dry well. Filling the bucket with water perks really good since it's in sandy soil. The problem I have is when the drain is completely covered with water it seems to create a vacuum so I need to vent it. Would it be best to vent the bucket with a pipe or vent the drain pipe with a T fitting and a pipe. I'm not sure if the drain pipe would vent properly if it is filled with water. Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help.
