sump pump?

6 posts in this topic

My sump pump has been running non stop for about the last 3-4 days. It maybe shuts off for a min. here and there. Ive tried to un plug it to see how full it would get and the water came all the way to the top so i had to keep it going. I have a beaver system installed which feeds to the sump pump. My question is do you think that i maybe have a frozen line somewhere to where it is pumped out to or do you think i actually have that much water running into the sump.

Not trying to be a wise-guy, but do you know where the end of your output line is? If so, check out there and see if there's water coming out.

If your house is on lower ground, we have had a fair amount of rain lately and your pump could be trying to relocate all of that.

I'm not sure what a beaver system is, but I assume it's basically drain tile from around your foundation and under the slab all fed into your sump hole.

Im not sure about where the output line is at. I know that there is one coming out of the curb in front of my house but ive never seen water coming from it even in the summer so im kinda geussing that maybe at some point the outlit was redone and put right into the catch basin or into the storm pipe.

You could always try taking the hose off of your sump pump for a minute and blowing some air through it, either manually or with a blower attachment for your compressor. Hopefully there's no resistance

I do get a lot of water around here but i would think it would be caught up by now after yeasterday and today where temps huvered right around freezing, so it souldnt have melted to much more.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
