Sump pump question

Posted by Nate on June 5th, 2000 10:28 PM

The sump pump [pit or resouvior]has water flowing in from
the outside of the drain tile. The drain tile is a plastic
tube shape and the installer cut a much larger hole in the
pit than was needed.[about 2 times the size].My question
is---Can I fill in the area around the drain tile to hold
back some of the water and mud that is coming in through
that area around the tile? If I can what would you recomend
I fill this area with? It looks like gravel and clay on the
outside of the basement wall.
