if your after a pump to reduce surface water in the garden then you need field drains laid in pea gravel to divert the water to the lowest point in the garden connected to a deep plastic tub with a submersible pump that will activate on a float when the water is high and the water is then pumped into the main sewer.hope that answers your question
