Question about Asetek COMING SOON WaterChill Xtreme Base Pump - 12V w/ 1/2" OD Fittings

1 Answer

I've been in my new home for 5 weeks and my sump pump runs every 7-10 minutes--though we haven't had any rain. The water company discovered that it is not city water (treated water). The builder says that it just must be ground water. What do you think?

What I've always done is just disconnect the water hose then start the washer and pull the trigger till no more water comes out. You don't want to run it very long at all after there's no more water though, you can quickly overheat the pump if it is ran without a water supply for too long. I've been doing this for the past 3 years with one of my washers and haven't had any problems with the pump.

Sump pump won't stop running

by the sounds of it, you are not in a very snowy climate in the northern hemisphere, or you are in a heat wave. the sump is used for getting rid of ground water near the footing of the walls so the soil doesn't become too loose (or wash away) and your house does not sink. right now, it sounds as if the sump pump is taking the water from the ground, pumping it back on your lawn, it soaks back into the ground in to the sump, and continues over and over. see where it's unloading. the outlet tubing should let out at least 10 feet from the house. if the hose is broken or fell off near the wall of your house, the expelled water is soaking back into the ground and right back into the sump. there may also be an underground water issue. if your water table is unusually high or there is a water main break, you'll have the same problem.

I have a Campbell and Hausfeld submersible pump,and the pump comes on every 8 minutes, pumps out for 5 minutes, then shuts off. Trying to find out if the float switch is going bad before buying a new pump.

Is the pump pumping out water when it comes on? If it is than it may be running as it is designed and you may want to look in to why you are getting so much water in the sump. Once the sump is filled to high enough level it will run the pump until the water level is at a low enough level. In other words the ON level switch is much higher than the OFF level switch.

My 1/2 HP WaterAce sump (R5S-1) runs but will not shut off

I found a replacement switch which is placed in series with the pump power plug. However when I removed the original switch and plunged the new switch I discovered that the pump motor spins but it does not pump. I installed a new pump.
