Complaint ResolutionIf a project goes badly, Angie’s List has a complaint resolution team standing by to help you.
Recently I noticed that the sewer line was leaking water at the point where the 4” PVC pipe exits the basement foundation wall. For example, on running the washing machine I saw water leaking out and running down the inside of the basement foundation walls. Over the past 6 months I had noticed that the foundation wall in that area was wet, in spite of all my attempts to fix the outside
drain, new larger capacity gutters and downspouts).
I got two free estimates. Both used cameras to inspect the blockage. One estimate was for about $3000 from an A-rated Angies list plumber (of two other A-rated plumbers contacted, one could not start until September and the other said this was too large a job for him). The first estimate proposed to put a "

They designed a that collects runoff from a number of downspouts & catchbasins across a fairly long distance around a sprawling house. Taking maximum advantage of the site, they attached everything to a single, gently-sloping main line to a shallow grass swale out back, delivering all the water back into the environment where it would naturally go.
If you're the kind of person who admires clever engineering, this one is
It was late summer, so the grass didn't recover as well as they said it would, and the ground is slightly depressed all the way along the main line through the grass. A couple of the downspouts were a slightly crooked and splattered with blue PVC cement. But these are really minor complaints. Overall, superb design and good implementation.
