      Help – I have dug a trench between my house and the fence in clay soil and was about to lay ag-pipe except I cannot connect it to the stormwater pipe – what can I do ? Will a trench filled with blue metal and sand be sufficient to hold the water until the clay absorbs it ?

      You kind of got me, what is the blue metal and sand for. If you need a pit dig one and fill it with rock and thr ground willabsorb the water. what is this ditch for. Give more detail.

      The trench isto redirect and catch water run off from the front of the house that was originally flooding the front rooms. I thought I could include a pipe to run the water into the stormwater line – not a good idea apparently; so I’m left with the option of just leaving the water in the trench for the clay to absorb – eventually. Any other ideas ?
