I just bought a house in edmonton,alberta canada built in 1990. I was inspecting the sump pump hole and was surprised to see NO drain holes emptying into the sump pit . i.e. it did not appear weeping tiles emptied into the pit. On reviewing the city bylaw website I determined wheeping tile can be drained into municipal sewer line so I assume thats where it was connected.
My question is: what is the purpose of this sump pit if the weeping tiles don't drain into it? There appears to be a hole on the bottom of the pit (see picture at about 5 o'clock) - but I am not sure what its for? Sometimes there is a few inches of water in the pit.
