It's rained for a week straight, and while I didn't think it was possible, my basement is flooding.
I got a 1/4 hp pump and a garden hose and am sucking out all the water. Question is, should I be sucking it into the flood drain? I think the hose is long enough to reach the front yard - should I just squirt it out there?
Where does this "flood drain" drain to? It may just go to the perimiter weeping system around the foundation. Send the water as far away from the house as possible. As to the title, yes a septic can be flooded.
