Sounds like a soak away system then, but the only way to really find out, is
to put dye down it and see if it appears in any of the manholes around the
house. A soak away is just like a pipe or tank that takes the rain water
and gently lets it soak into the soil a bit further away from house. This
stops anything running back under the property and rotting the foundations.
If it's working, and there are no damp patches forming anywhere, then leave
it alone in case you make things worse. :-)) Well done that man !
Sounds like good advice to "Fran the Tool Man".
I have had enough looking down man-holes while cleaning my Ma's blocked
drain. Seven rods went in and as two came out the contents started filling
the inspection chamber. And still five rods to go. "We can't stop now!"
