sump pumps
Posted by greg wilson on February 22, 2002 at 22:47:39:
The basement on my brand new house was dry for 3 years and in the last two years, the basement has flooded two times. I have a sump pit with two four inch inlets and a 1/3 h.p. pump. After a heavy rain the water will start coming in very heavily for hours and then will slow down to a trickle. During the last flood the pump was running but could not keep up. What are my options. Simply a more powerful pump, but also why so much water(the house next door receives very little). Any help for flood scared homeowner???
