View Full Version : basement water

11-28-2005, 11:13 AM
My basement was built about a foot too low. We are thinking of digging a trench down to the footing drain, which drains into my sump pump opening and the pump never stops. The drain would be one inch pitch for each section of non. perf pipe. Can we use 6inch pipe to get rid of more water, or because the footing drains are only 4 inch thats all the water would take anyway. Do you think this will solve my water problems. thanks, Mike
