|In response to Re: sump pumps|
: I rent a 3 level townhouse; and the landlord told me there is a "sump pump" by the furnace. The "sump pump" comes "on" continuously day and night. Is this normal? The noise it makes is driving me crazy. Thanks.
If the underground water table is high then the pump will operate constantly,you may want to talk to your neighbors and see if they have the same thing happening.Your city or town waterworks may also be able to tell you if you have a high water table,or at least point you in the direction of someone who can.If you don't have a high water table then there may be a leak underground.Leaks can be fixed water tables can't.
