I was under the impression the external sump had holes on it, so that when the water level reaches a certain level, it’ll just naturally disperse into the soil fairly far away from the house. You do make a good point regarding the volume of water the external sump could handle. I’m not sure what you mean by your last sentence. Are you referring to if I had a basement sump, & it was pumping to the outdoors?. I would likely dig a trench, & install an external sump if water was just pissing onto my lawn. I just wanted to know if my external sump would suffice instead of a basement sump/pump. Kind of a unique situation
