Standing water in main trap
I have an issue with the house main trap in the basement. This only happens in the spring time and stops nearing the winter time. I noticed standing water in the trap long after a big rainstorm has arrived and would take days for it to seep back into the ground.
Luckily it is not high enough to get into the basement floor. Question is, how would you be able to fix that? Can I just open the gutter trap and let the water drain out whenever it rains? Outside the house is a 4x20feet vegetable garden and next to it is my neighbors driveway. I suspect all the water during the rainstorm goes into this garden and builds up enough water that it gets into the trap. Is there an easy fix to this? I thought about drywells but will it work? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
