Crawl Space Flooding?
Hi guys ... this may not be the best place to post this, but there are so many knowledgeable people here that i thought i'd double post (the design forum being the other place).
My gardens are a work in progress, and one of my issues has been to properly consider and plan for all-things-drainage. I'm making sure my gutters are all clean and flowing, i put in a french drain, put in two other drains, and just had a sump pump put in for back-up. My question now is about the sump pump. Is this what it's supposed to look like? Is the water supposed to get to a certain level before it kicks in?
Here's the other corner of the crawl space. It looks very very wet to me, with the foundation obviously porous and wet in some areas. Do you guys think i've got a larger problem on my hands?
