The outflow of my sump pump exits my house about a foot off the ground in a 2" pipe. The water collects in a low area of the yard, between the house and a small berm (the other side of the berm slopes gradually to the curb). I would like to route the water away from the house and keep it from collecting in one spot.
Should I pipe it through the berm with a solid pipe for drainage toward the curb? Or dig a trench ("French drain?") to let the water dissipate underground without any exit point? Or is there some other solution?
Sump pump help please !!
