ok, i broke thru the floor in a small area where it looked like water was coming up thru. well, much to my suprise it was nothing like i expected! looks like in a channel along the wall footer are two corrugated pipes [black plastic] probably 2-3" in diameter laying in/covered with a bed of crushed stone. they also don't appear to be perforated[sp?]. there was some 'standing water' under the spot i hacked out, so i poked a couple holes in the pipe to get the water out of the way so i could see what the heck i was looking at.
now, if these pipes don't have holes in them along the entire run, how'n the heck does it move the water away from the channel they sit in??
i have half a mind to just go along that entire wall and hack out the pipes and remove the stone and leave an exposed channel so the water can run freely to the sump.
at this point, i don't think a flush 't' is going to fix my issue, any ideas?
will try to post a few pic's of my dilemma here shortly.
