During the first two week of April only, when the ground is frozen and it rains more than one inch, I get water in my finished basement. I am in the process of digging a trench around the parameter of the house. I already have one sump pump that is able to drain the water from one part of the house but the other section is the area that I am getting water. Do you have any suggestions that I can use for installing drains on the outside of the house or how I should lay the pipe? or possibly installing another sump pump on the other end of the house? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
