  • Sump Pump Won't Stop

    A new Ridgid 1 HP sump pump with a Watersense switch. It has been in use 31 days and just today I noticed it will not stop running. Any ideas?

    Chunk it and put in a Zoeller.

      That sure is helpful?????

      I have had the same problem and it appears to be a problem with all pumps that have a "water sensor switch" I have to pull out the pump wipe off the grime and it works again. It should stop cycling until the pit fills again. I have heard you can get a float system to replace the sensor from Ridgid but haven't tried yet. My sensor worked fine for two seasons and just failed this year but I keep a fine mesh screen over the pump to protect it from debris? Hope this helps
