A job we did for Mr. Jackson,
The contractor that built his house ( a little over 3 years ago) had installed an illegal sump pump. About three months after they moved in Mr. Jackson noticed water in his crawl space. He dug a hole just big enough for a 5-gallon bucket, put the sump pump back in, and ran a hose from the pump. He did this to help pump the water out. But Didn't know that what he did was illegal.
We came and set his sump-pump up the right way. We installed a new sumppump and changed out the water lines to have the water drain out to the correct areas of his property.
