In a lot of towns, like mine for example, it is illegal to pump your sump pump water back into your storm sewer (aka drain on the basement floor). I would run at least a 1 1/2" PVC discharge line out of your house and then connect some flexible tube or piping to that to carry it further away from your house.

Storm sewer or rain water run off area. In other words , almost anywhere where it won't come back in.

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.

Replace the float with either a pressure operated float switch, or a verticle float that has a rod in the center, Home Depot has ubiversal floats of all three variations.

Sump pump float adjustment


This really depends entirely on you. the higher the water level the less frequently it will run. most motors use more power to start than they do to run so starting less should save you money.

Will drain water


110-120v motors are designed to run only one direction they cannot be reversed a more likely solution is that something is blocking the line for water to flow out or that the impeller is not turning try taking the hose off the top (be careful not to get wet ) and turn the pump on to see if water comes out top if it does line is blocked, if not time to get new pump

Water backing up into my basement ejector pump during heavy rain


I have seen this problem several times before. The ejector pump should be in a separate crock in the ground by itself. Someone has installed it in the crock that is meant to pump out drain water. Probably the result of adding a bathroom in the basement. You need to bust another hole in the floor and install a separate crock to solve this problem correctly. If it just started happening go outside and look at he gutters to make sure water is running away from the house and not up against the foundation.

Please rate if this helps-
