  • sump pump keeps running

    I have a sump pump in the basement that is working properly to drain the tank, but when it gets to the bottom, it just gurgles and continues to run and run. If I pound on the pipe it stops the pump, but once the tank fills again it keeps running. I believe it is a Rigid Pump and it does not seem to have a float. just a small black round box attached to the pump that has a cord coming out of it? Can anyone help?

    It is malfunctioning...replace it while it still will pump. Rain will continue the rest of the day. Good Luck!

          Thanks,

          I have heard great things about Zoeller. Do you think there is anything I can do to get the pump to stop running, in the mean time? or do I just keep hitting it??
