Im digging out the back of my house (blockwalls) and im down to foundation. there is no drain tile in there now so i want to put one in . i cant get a gravity drain because im like 7 ft deep to the top of footer out front but my property only slopes down 4 ft or so to the street. however about 10 ft from my house there is a 4 inch white cleanout pipe that goes to sanitary sewer. its like 9 1/2 ft down i stuck a tape down it. i know its sanitary cause i flushed toilet and went out with flashlight and could see the water flowing. so if im seven ft at my footer dug over ten ft with 1 ft of fall could i tie into that vertical stack with a Y and do my footer drain that way? if not what could i do.

number 2 all they put on my block is some crap looks like black paint. as im getting closer to the footer it just scrapes right off the wall. its really crappy mud caved in a few times but its sloped back like 4 ft wide ditch now. i have to tunnel under a deck. i have plywood leaned up against the house covering the ditch and its covered with tarps in case it rains . Ive checked out their products is there anyway you could tell me which product you use in there . and also the stone im gonna need truckloads what is it 1/2 inch peastone 1 inch or what ? thanks alot
