In response to Re: sump pumps
Look in the sump pump pit and watch while the water is pumped out. When the pump shuts off, if the water starts filling the pit again, you have a bad check valve. If water comes in the pipe in the side of the pit, then you have a water infiltration problem and it could be a high water table, but is more likely a water leak.

: 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.
