The sump pump shold not be run into the sanitary sewer, but if your floor drain is hooked to a sump pump pit and it doesn';t pump the water before it gets to the drain tile it could come up in the drain,, to solve the problem get a pump that the float is lower in the pit,, suggestion zoeller cast iron submersable pump cost about 100 less the install price, great low profile pump, it keeps less waterin the sump pump pit so there is less mosture

    push a hose down the drain and flush it out you might even have to run a snake thru the drain,, it appears the drain is just colgged. check to see if the height of the water in the sump pump pit is higher then the drain, before the pump comes on,, if the level is higher in the pit then the drain, you will need to install a pump that has a lower contact to make the pump come on at a lower level, or even put a deeper pit in

HOW can I tell if a Goulds jet pump needs replacement?


pull the foot valve as it takes very little to allow the water to drain back out. Personally I would replace all pipes in the hole with heavy duty /high pressure plastic agricultural irrigation pipes

Machine keeps icing up and switching off


When you say ices up do you mean the line ices up back to the compressor. is water overflowing over sump tray? or is it dumping out drain? If you are not getting water over the evaporator plate then it will frost up the evaporator plat all the way back to the compressor.if the water is dumping into the drain during freeze cycle check the dump valve this will not let sump tray stay full of water. make sure water filter is good as this will not let sump tray stay full fast enough. is water pump pumping water over the evap plate?

/my dehumidifier has a hose attachment on the back. how does that work?


The hose attachment is used in place of the water collection bucket, to drain the water directly into a floor drain or a sump pump holding tank. A garden hose is connected to the "hose attachment" and run to the floor drain or sump pump holding tank. However, it will not drain UP, only DOWN.

Hope this helped.

Just purchased a home with water ace sump pump.


That's the idea; if you lift the float the water starts pumping because it works off of that float. That type of pump is usually meant for water that is in a tub or bucket, so that when the water reaches a certain height and causes the float to rise allowing the pump to kick on. I use a pump like that to pump our the drained water from my washing machine in my basement, i let the water go into a big 50 gallon drum and then once the drum is half full i have it set so the float rises and pumps out the water. That being said, if you are putting this in your basement at floor level, you would need to get a 10 gallon bucket meant for sump pumps (you can get one at your local home store) and rent a jackhammer if your basement is concrete and put the bucket in the floor and the sump pump in the bucket, this is called a sump pit. Another option is to get whats often called a "floor ******" pump. Its a pump that sucks the water out when it reaches around a half inch of depth and it can be used in several feet of water (I've used these as well, there is no float involved), and it can be set on level ground there is no sump pit needed. The one thing with my pump you may not want, is that it's constantly running because its constantly monitoring for water so that a lot of water will not build up (especially if water can damage some thing in the surrounding area) . You can check out all the types at your local home store.

Water on drivers side floor board.


Check under the car to make sure all rubber drain plugs are in place.
( When I had a leak in my 98 Lincoln both sides of the floor panels were wet here the leak was from the moon roof drain tubes.) Look below thats how I found my problem.

Easiest way to find the leak I know it sounds strange but it works. Take a water hose and have someone spray the car down while your sitting inside and look for the leak. Thats how I found the leak in my car. It might take a few times but it works.

Bosch dishwater backed up/leaking


You may have upset the lower door gasket, a kind of "wiper" that keeps the water inside during wash/ Look for a wrinkel in it. Maybe push it down some. the track where it goes my be you can see and it will be self explaning. As for the water not draining.... A hose kinked, A pumpout drain valve not gettign power, I just had the same problem with mine and found a small piece of a plastic baggy in the pump sump covering part of the drain hole. And after that I had no drain and just squished the drain hose at the outlet. I suspect a buildup of grease or maybe some more plastic was inside the the outlet tube. Mine drains fine now. Look for these. And let me know please
