I am in the process of putting in a patio and small retaining walls in
front of my walkout basement.
I excavated 8" down from the floor of the basement for the patio, and
exposed the top of the green PVC drain tile.
As I excavated around the drain tile to tie in drainage lines from
behind the retaining wall I found the pipe 50% filled with water and
standing water to that level gravel bed.
I have never had flooding in this area in the past, and there is a
catch basin that ties into the footer 4' directly in front of the
door, and this has always drained properly.
Should I be concerned with the water standing at this level?
