  • 1/3 hp sump pump problems

    I am replacing my old pump with a Rigid 1/3 hp pump. I installed a new check valve (yes the arrows are pointing up) but when I plug the pump in the motor goes on but no water discharges. I shut the pump off disconnect the pipes and there is no water north of the check value but there is a lot of air pressure in the line. What am I doing wrong?

    Sounds like you have a plugged line.

    Sump pumps can't make more than about 15 lbs of pressure, so if there is an obstruction, it's not likely going to blow it down stream.
