Ran across this sump pump this morning. There was some water which is fine and I tested the pump and it started running-fine. As you can see there’s a hose going into the pit though, from about 10 inches up the wall. I’m not sure where that water is coming from though. I should have investigated further, however I didn’t. It was an odd inspection. I suppose it could be from an interior appliance or sink, and perhaps that would explain the way I found it, which is puzzling me also, making me think I really missed something. It was very WELL hidden (and I almost missed it completely) as you can see…so I’m trying to think why did they try so hard to hide it, and thus perhaps that pipe is a no-no. So, if anyone can think of something I might have missed, please by all means let me know what you think!
Thanks a lot, in advance,
