The wall-o-text says something about draining to a 10x10 pond? Is that pump up and over to or is the grade a hillside that you can drain to daylight? If it's hillside, you might just need to grab the water before it reaches the house with some french drains.

Otherwise, what I've read/watched is drilled PVC drain tiles over the corrugated flex stuff because it collapses. I've never understood the filter fabric around the pipe. If it clogs over the holes, you have to dig it up to fix. Fabric, gravel, pipe. If it makes it to the gravel, let it flow out. Put some cleanouts in while you have it open.
