Assuming your description is correct, you must find and open up the far end of the drain pipe that extends away from the house. As long as the far end is covered over the entire drain system will back up to the house and cease to perform its intended function.

The sump with no drain pipes connected to it will protect the basement floor from flooding about five feet all around it.

Re: Wet basement.


Ironically I found a clog in my gutter. I cleaned it out and haven't had any problems. But still no luck with the drain.
