SUSPECT: Blocked, brocken, crushed, sub drainage system.
The sump basin is empty.
The basin is full of clay particulate.
It is fresh. Still wet.
Sump basins have a constant level of low water range.
This keeps the impeller assembly wet and lubricated and sump pump system primed to exhaust the high levels of french drainage water that enters the basin.
There is a high level trip switch that actuates the pump to evacuate the water to the exterior plumbing.
The water level then returns to the low water level in the sump basin.
RECOMMEND** a licensed drainage company to do a bore scope evaluation on the sump drainage system.
1.) Possible break in the coupling, crushed, blocked drainage line…
Ask the home owner for full disclosure.
Maintenance records and receipts.
Have they have had exterior work done.
Ask the client if an excavator or hand digging was done.
Foundation crack repairs etc.
Here is a photo of a blocked sub drainage system done in the winter. December.
I will be repairing it this spring.
I asked them to look in the sub drainage container 2 times… Sump pit.
It is empty.
My bore scope found the culprit.
Email me if you need help with sub drainage.
I do not know everything.
My narrative is small but explanatory.
I have repair sub drainage and foundation cracks for 15 plus years.
