As far as the landscape goes....I am getting water in when there is has been no rain for several days. It is constant. I tested the water for chlorine. Would a broken pipe somewhere and the flow of the water thru clay and soil and such filter the chems out?
Is where the drain tile located below the level of the basement floor? If it is, just run a pipe and eliminate the sump pump.
i dont know if some a home test kit would detect the small amount of chlorine in municipal water. It would take less than a minute to just look at the water meter to see if its spinning or not. Of course, look at it when no one is showering or doing laundry or whatever.
