|In response to Re: sump pump - help!|
: : : Dear Sir:
: : : we have a submersible sump pump in our basement..there are 3 incoming drains that are from under our basement floor from 3 different sides that feed into the sump pit....there is one drain pipe that is only about 5 inches from the bottom of the sump pit....and this is the pipe 95% of the water comes into the pit from....so when the water comes into the pit, it rises
: : What is the purpose of this pump? Is it for pumping ground water from beneath your basement or for pumping sewer waste? It sounded like ground water to me.
I dont see a problem with the way it is working now. Lowering the level would shorten the pump cycle (meaning less water will be pumped each time) but if it were mine I would leave it the way it is. The water backing up that lower pipe should not be a problem as far as I know.
: Yes it is ground or rain water from under the house basement and all....not sewer water...
