Hi guys. So 3 weeks ago we got some water seeping in thru the basement window during a storm. I'm still learning this house as I've only owned since January and we didn't know that side of house is holding water in heavy rain. Upon investigation I found the ground was holding a lot of water and the well was completely flooded! I put two coats of flex seal over the window, it's never opened anyway and behind some bushes, I dug out the well expecting to find a clogged drain but to my dismay there is no drain! I dug it down past the pink insulation foam board about 2.5ft or so and since then that's how it's been sitting. U.S. Waterproofing quoted me some 2800 to remove and block up the window, no thanks, and said it's too much of a liability to install a drain that can drain to the footer tile! Their suggestion was to run the drain inside to the sump pit some 60ft away inside my fully finished basement, no thanks. Should I get some clean gravel and refill it with that or put the dirt back in? I have a well cover but was also wondering because I'm not sure if leaving it dug out like that could cause some kind of damage?
