In the Houston area, most people are unfamiliar with a sump pump drain. Unlike any other landscape drainage system, a sump pump drain is a multi-purposeful, submersible, and electric-powered pump. Indeed, if you are experiencing abnormal flooding, more likely you need to install a sump pump.
PROS: Pumps more water than a traditional 4-inch pipe and used in conjunction with any of the conventional drainage system. However, increases the value of the property. In addition, if necessary, it can drain water uphill instead of relying on gravity to drain out water. Another thing is that there is No cost in maintenance.
CONS: The entire drainage system is too dependent on power, which can be a problem in case of a power outage unless you decide to go with the pump with a backup battery. Also, if the pump gets clogged, the whole system fails. Regular maintenance checkups of the residing reservoirs are necessary to ensure freedom from all debris that can potentially clog the system.
