My yard and driveway floods when we have big rain storms. We don't have them often here in CA, but when it rains it rains hard. And they say El Nino is coming so... The water gets about 3 inches deep across 20 square feet of driveway and yard. A sump pump won't work, because the water isn't deep enough to prime the pump. There's no place to sink a sump pump either. (I've done that in another part of my yard.) I want a pump that has a snake-like, screened surface intake hose that lies on the ground/driveway and sucks up this water. Does this type of pump exist? If so, what is it called? I have searched for a long time, and I'm stunned that I can't find a pump like this. It's the obvious tool to use in this situation. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
