Outdoor drainage pit for indoor sump pump discharge
I have an indoor submersible in a sump pit. It discharges through the basement wall to the outdoors and the drainage pipe runs down hill under the earth and the pipe exits at grade level after running 40 feet or so. When this system was installed there was no issue, but since that time the previous owner severed the existing lot into two lots, mine and the new neighbours. Unforunately the drainage pipe ends right on the lot line between the 2 properties. My plan is to cut the pipe back 4 or 5 feet and dig a pit about 3-4 feet cubed and fill it with gravel 5/8" or 3" minus. This way I am hoping the water won't pool on either lot, nor will reeds grow where the water empties onto the lawn.. Will this work? Any recommendations on size of stone for pit or anything else. Appreciate any advice given.
