Stormwater on your property should be channeled towards the stormwater drainage system. This is done through surface drainage (swales and grading). To protect your home from flooding, weeping tile is often used. Weeping tile is a perforated plastic pipe that surrounds and protects the foundation of your home. It sits on a bed of gravel, allowing excess groundwater to seep into it. This water is channeled to either the sump pump if you have one (in your basement) or directly to the drainage system.
Most homes built after 1988 have a sump pump, used in conjunction with weeping tiles. The sump pump is located in a shallow pit in your basement. Its job is to help protect your home from flooding by channeling groundwater away from your home.
If water from your sump hose discharges too close to your foundation, the water may end up back in your system, possibly compromising your foundation.
Maintenance on sump pumps should be completed by a qualified plumbing technician.
