Open Question

I have a coleman sump pump 1/3hp 3420gph 33-aep that I just installed in my basement and all the water has been pumped out of my hole but the pump will not stop. It is my understanding that the pump is suppose to stop until the water gets to a certain level then it will start pumping again. Need help?

SOURCE: on a water holding tank


since the hole is at the bottom of the tank, no amount of idea or solution that be given to you that will permanently solve the problem because water will always remain at the bottom of the tank and the more the pressure, the more the hole will expand or getting worse because of the pressure or weight of the water at the bottom. Even the temporary solution will not last long since it is at the bottom where all the weight of the water is been exacted.

I will strongly advice you get another new thank to save you unnecessary spending and waste of energy and time.

disassemble the pump by removing the c-shaped ring aroudn the metal cap. a flathead screwdriver will work to pry off the ring.

pull out the pump assembly. The end is probably a old dried out leather ring. It needs oil (car motor oil shoudl be fine) and it needs to make a tight seal.

if it is too loose, it might be possible to press it out to make it wider. If not, it needs to be replaced. The pump assembly is about 8 dollars at many stores.

Oven door will not close completely, therefore oven light is always on and the outside manual switch doesn't turn light off or on. The gasket around the window is brittle and coming away from its anchors in a number of places. I would think it needs to be replaced. Where is this part available? either on line or in Toronto, ON.

Had a patio put in and Contractor apparently did NOT hook up or install drainage pipes deep enough into the as my basement has flooded three different times

im not sure that the patio would have much effect on flooding in the basement
hi precipitation this year and a higher than normal water table which is the lvel below ground that if you dig into starts to fill with water.

your problem is more likely a drainage issue are there any sump pumps in your basement or does it at least have a floor drain if so perhaps there is a clog

call a plumber and the patio contractor and have a professional determine the reason for the flooding

ps you can purchase portable sump pumps you can set on a flooded floor and plug in and they will pump out water when the floor floods automatically

Sump pump

I am presuming you're asking about a basement sump pump, the kind that keeps your basement dry. Well, those things are not meant to run all the time. They are usually triggered by a float valve. That is a device that moves according to the water level in the sump (in other words, the hole). When the water gets high enough, the float activates a switch, the pump kicks in, the water is flushed away, the float falls and that turns the pump off until the cycle starts all over again. The frequency of the cycle depends on how fast the sump fills itself. I have one that kicks in five times a minute. Another might have a much longer off time. But don't be worrying about yours not being on all the time... that is how they are supposed to behave. Of course, if you have water flowing out the top of the sump, that is a sign things are not right with the pump. Then you really need help.

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.

My Simer 2300-03 has been great except that it overheats after awhile. Too little water??

Yes. I recently used a similar pump (Flotech 1/6 hp) running for about 24 hours - but it came with this warning "don't use continuously unless submerged in at least 4 inches of water". This is because it will easily overheat, as yours has been doing. Mine worked for pumping water out of my basement (not the speediest little pump), but only because there is a sump hole in the floor where the pump could remain submerged.

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).

Pump continues to make noise as if its cavitating when there is no water to pump.

If there is no water to pump then it is cavitating. It should turn off when the sump is emptied down and the float drops onto the switch arm

Installing a Washer in basement

The top of the drain pipe that the washing machine drains in to should be about 3 feet off the ground. If the sewer pipe is higher than that you can either get a longer hose, or drain it into a sump with a sump pump that pumps it into the sewer pipe. If you don't have a sump, first try the longer hose and make sure it drains to a point higher than the sewer pipe (that would be the easiest) or cut a hole in your floor and put in a sump and sump pump (the most difficult).
