SOURCE: ive got a shallow jet

Just curious, why do yo9ur run water from a tank to a pit?

Where is the pressure switch located? At the pump I presume? What will increase the pressure? If you are pumping to an open pit, you will never build up any pressure? What is supposed to restrict the pump to create pressure?

You need a restriction to create pressure to turn off the pump. Is there a float valve like in your toilet in the pit? If not this would be required

Good Luck

SOURCE: Appropriate size inverter for sump pumps

First...you need to find the amperage on the pump...your inverter is rated for 6.25 Amps...(750/120)...you will need an inverter bigger then the pump..I would suggest at least 1.5 times the size of the pump..bear in mind,..the inverter wasnt designed to start motors...so oversizing is needed..

Hope this helps

SOURCE: sump pump not pumping water properly

If your pump is turning then something is stopping the water from being removed. If you can see the pump check to see if the water is becoming turbulent when the pump kicks on? If the water doesn't appear to move or is moving only a little then either the pump impeller is damaged or the screen that keeps debris from entering the pump is clogged.
If it's never been cleaned it is most likely just a clogged filter screen. Clean it and it should work fine. If however the screen is clear then it is either a blocked line or a bad pump. And yes a pump can still run and not pump, if the impeller is bad.

It's very old, stagnate water full of bacteria. Poor some Clorox in the sump and let it sit a while. Not the whole bottle, a few cups.

Impeller runs, no water comes out. Removed output hose, air is blowing out when removed from sump.


Remove bottom cover, check for clogged intake holes, and make sure the impeller is solidly attached to the shaft. Can you see the water in the sump? Is the sump full of sand at the bottom?

Utilitech sump pump


See if there is power. If so the level switch might be stuck off. If that is OK then the pump motor has probably failed.
