Drain pipes might go under the ground. You have slab leak. Plumber will figure it out, or check blue prints of Your house if You have those(will show You "What Where")

How high does the pump have to lift, in feet from the water in the sump to the highest point of the piping?
While the pump is running, what is your municipal water pressure near the sump pump?
You saw it work in the store, were those conditions different?

My pump won't turn off


If the sump (where you catch the water) was dry, your pump might be air bound.

You say it will not shut off but you dont say if it is pumping. My guess it is is not. You have a local switch, i.e. integral to the pump, right? Not a float switch.

Do this, fill the sump, make sure the switch opening is clear (it works on water pressure) and make sure there is no air trapped inthe pump housing.

I hope this helps.

In my bar situation, I use a float switch and I pump up about 2 feet where the water goes into a stand pipe equipped with a vent. The stand pipe feeds into a hose and leads to a sump elsewhere in the basement where the water is pumped over the side (sorry, that was the sailor in me coming out).

The water fills the tank but does not go out of the hose and drain to the sump pump as designed


Check the hose for clog up as well as your sump pump. Have your hose unclogged and let it run. Check the sump pump if this is running. And if it is, and still no water goes out. Open the sump, and check the impeller for defect. Impeller is the one that turns around to push the water out. If it is defective, you must replace it to make it run.
Once you are done, power it up and start it.

Pump support


Follow these steps to replace a malfunctioning sump pump. If you are starting from scratch and want to put in a completely new sump pump and drain line, you should have a professional plumber do any actual piping unless you have an advaced knowledge of those techniques. Locate the sump pump in your basement. Unplug it to avoid possible electrical shock or personal injury. Find the place to disconnect the pump from the drain line. This is usually either a screw-together type union or a rubber coupling with hose-clamp fastenings. Both are quickly and easily undone. Remove the pump from the pit and allow it to drain for a few minutes. Any plastic piping or fittings that comes from the water outlet opening and goes up to where the pump connected to the drain line needs to be removed and saved to reattach to the new pump. Take the pump with you to your local hardware store, plumbing-supply house or home-improvement center. They can help you pick a replacement that requires the same power source and provides the same drain-line hookups and pumping capabilites. Reattach any piping and fittings in the same way that they were on the old pump. Set the new pump in the pit and reconnect the union. Plug in the pump. You can test the pump by filling the sump pit with buckets of water.
