I estimate that the hole is about 20 inches deep and 20 inches wide and runs for about 24 to 30 inches. The hole is also filled with water. I have pumped the water out of the hole two times. Each time it has refilled with water overnight. We have had a tremendous amount of rain this summer and the ground is very saturated. I have verified that the water is not coming from a leaky pipe or the air conditioning unit.
My plan right now is to pump the water out of hole and then scoop out any loose or gooey slop. I will then immediately fill it with concrete. I estimate it will take about six to eight bags of concrete to do the job.
Does this sound like a good solution? Will the water in the ground mess with the concrete as it hardens? Should I possibly wait for the dryer weather to see if the ground water level lowers leaving a dry hole to fill?
I would appreciate any thoughts or Ideas.
