“I woke up at 2am this morning and my whole backyard was a complete lake. More water than I have ever seen standing in my yard, of course we received 6 inches of rain by my estimates.
When I went out in the yard at 6am this morning, nothing. Absolutely no standing water at all. Lots of mulch from the neighbors yards was piled up on the east side of the house, but no water. The outlet caps at the ends of the drains had been popped off, I am assuming from water pressure. I don’t mind seeing that because it gives me an assurance that water is actually coming out of the drains.
I am positive that before you put the drains in I would have had 100s of gallons of standing water in my backyard and my sump pump would be running non-stop for days.
The drains seem to be a success. Thanks.”
