I live on a one-acre piece of property in Southern Ontario. My concern is the frequency of which my sump pump goes on and off. It has not rained here in over a week and a half and the sump still works every 22 seconds (it was working every 4 seconds after rain and snow melt). All of my downspouts are 25' away from the foundation. I obviously have an issue with the high water table here. I need to know if I can cut into my weeping tile at the back of the house's basement; hire someone to dig a ditch below the basement depth; cut into the tile at the foundation; drain off the water coming into the pump well by diverting it away from the house into the new tile . . . I have over 250' of distance to run the tile with a vertical drop of over 11' . . . Do I put in solid ABS 3" pipe? Do I place the end of the pipe in to some kind of pit? Is there a sump well that can be placed in the yard which would allow me to place the new tile into it?
drain needs to run away from house at least 15 feet and "to light" or into a dry well. Which is a 6 X 6 X 6 hole filled with 2" stones and 3/4 gravel. Solid drain pipe is used, not ABS. This is a white thin pipe.
