I have a perimeter drain in my basement. The plastic pipe is graded to force
water to pump, but with this last storm There was little water going into the
sump pump. I did get a wet basement. I would think with that much rain the
pump would be running constantly, like my neighbor's who did not get a
flooded basement. Could my drainage pipes be blocked. Any Ideas.
THere is only one exposed area to where the water is coming in. The one side
is the Garage and the other side is where I had an addition built. I think
your resolution has credence, and will check it out, but seems like my pipes
should have been shooting water out like a fire hose.
Thanks for your help.

Perimeter meaning inside the wall? Was the water within or without the
perimeter of these pipes?
Anyway you look at it, they should have drained some water. Certainly if
there was enough to get into the basement. But it ddoes depend on how the
water got into the basement. How do you think it got there?
