the ground water we have here, just installing the drain system created enough of a relief valve that the ground water stays out- side the building envelope. I don’t need a sump pump to pass inspection either, so basically I have a giant hole in my floor. I can cover it up and regain part of a closet that oth- erwise would have no floor and a pipe running up the wall.
This is where the strong back, weak mind thing kind of breaks down. There’s a lot to think about when doing a job like this because it happens all over the yard and house. Outside, it’s important to think about where things will be stored and how you’ll order them: In bags or in bulk. If you have a dumpster, is there room to get by it with stone or concrete or other supplies? I live in town, so there’s no spacious double-wide driveways for me. This stuff is always on the top of my mind. It’s good practice for being generally efficient too.
ORDERING AND ORGANIZING
It's a good idea to choose a battery back-up sump pump to prevent failure during power outages. All discharge pipe penetrations should be sealed to prevent moisture from escaping the pump basin.
