Alleviating perimeter drain water
We have a sump system with the perimeter perforated corrugated 4″ drain tiling flowing into the sump from a connection under our 6″ thick concrete floor.
If I put a liner into the sump allowing the drains to penetrate and also covered and sealed this liner with a top and installed a 1-1/2″ dia. ABS pipe extending out the top, sealed all floor drains, would the pressure of the perimeter drains build up enough while trying to drain into the sump now enclosed be enough to force the water up and out of the 1-1/2″ ABS pipe to a height of 60 inches? The 1-1/2 pipe now being the route of least resistance to allow the water to escape.
