It's always fun figuring stuff out on a new house. It took me years before I realized where my sump water drained to -- and that I didn't even need to run a pump! It drains by gravity!
No sump pump, it has drains in the basement.
A couple of other mystery pipes, there is about 4 or 5 of them. They disclosed that the basement got a little water during heavy rains but the only water we saw during any of the heavy rains last year was in one corner. That was easy fix, the down spout was just going out on the ground on that corner and because of tree growth it was pitched in slightly where it was going. We ran a piece of PVC so it goes out away from the house. Permanent fix will be this summer.
Another mystery was the down spouts in the front of the house all went into the ground, the neighbor solved that for us because he new where it came out. Hard to see it because of brush but It goes out to the road, it's such a long shot you would have never expected it. The hope is the basement drains are hooked to that too. It goes off to the left, behind the trees there is little hill down to the road. It has to be at least 200 feet run.
Weird how there's 2 sets of pipes there. I can't imagine what for, other than there's 2 septic tanks because a very large family lived there before???
AFAIK the original owner didn't have a family and owned it for maybe 10 or 20 years. I'm thinking when he had it built he wasn't messing around. If you're going to lay 200 feet of pipe for rain water? Just to mention a few other things there's a little screen room out back that has it's own fireplace and it's a nice fireplace. The one 4X4 post by the door has an electric switch mounted flush
There's both water and electric 100 feet out in front of the house in those trees....
Check out the I-beam in the garage.
That's the kind of stuff we keep finding, the second owners had no kids to the best of my knowledge. When the house was purchased it was in great shape, everything was just old, not beat up old though. Walls were perfect, nothing banged up like you'd expect from kids. When we pulled the carpets up there was only one area with slight stain on the hardwood.
