Our weeping tile system on the exterior of our house can not hold all the water. Our sump goes off every 3 minutes (480 times in 24 hrs). Water was collecting under our slab but that has been resolved with the installation of a weeping tile system we had installed under the slab.
Is there any way we could drain the exterior weeping system without bringing it into the house and then pumping it out with a sump pump?
We looked at draining it directly into the storm drain but our sump pit and weeping tile system are lower than the storm drain. Has anyone experienced this before?
We are battling with the developer as this problem has increased since we bought the house 2 and a half years ago.
Does any one have any suggestions or solutions?
Sounds like their problem could be as a result of many issue.
1- Grading of the exterior landscape- Could be sloping to the house. If so should consider regrading if possible.
2- High ground water table. Best solution is to have all downspouts directed well away from the house.
3- Is the pump pit actually filling with water or is the pump it self set to low. Its possible that the check valve is to low it the pit and is turning on with minimal water in the pit.
Hope this was helpful..
