Pipes for sump drain lines
Posted by Ellen Buelow on March 06, 2003 at 16:41:08:
We unfortuneately live in an area with a high water table, & it is a constant battle to keep our basement dry. The biggest problem that we have encountered is that the sump lines are constantly getting clogged with a red clay-like dirt that is in the soil. It gets very hard, and can be difficult to remove. Last night we had one of our lines broken while we were having it professionally cleaned out.
Has anyone encountered a problem like this? Are there any types of pipes that are less likely to clog than others? Or can the pipes be coated with something prior to installation to keep the dirt from sticking?

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
