sump pump drainage
I had a sump pump installed last fall. During the winter the outside drainage froze and kept my sump from draining and we had to keep bailing water out manually. They came back this fall top "fix" it. drainage pipe very slightly goes down about 6 inches into a basin they call it. (a hole with stones in it.) Water sits in this hole a while before draining out. I can see already this will also freeze. my soil is a lot of clay and wont absorb water very well. Please give me advice or ideas. Thank you.
