Sump Pump drainage
Currently my sump pump (located at the back of the house) discharges right out the front of the house. We don't get that much water in it, but during very bad storms, we have gotten water in the basement because the sump discharge water pools right against the house. I have just attached a long piece of pipe during bad storms, and that works fine because we have a nice slope in our front yard towards the street.
I'm building a wall for landscaping, so I can't keep using the pipe, so I want to put the discharge line underground. I was just going to run the line about 15' away from the house and have it end underground in the middle of the yard, with half of the pipe being perforated so the water won't all discharge at the very end. I was hoping this would work since there isn't all that much water and I currently do this (although above the ground not in it). I was going to dig the trench, lay down landscaping fabric, a few inches of gravel, the pipe and then a bit more gravel and cover with the fabric.
Will this work? Do I have to take it all the way to the street? I live in Central/Northern New Jersey. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
