  • Sump pump working but not draining

    My sump pump is working but not pumping water out. I filled my bathtub with water and put the Pump in there to make sure it worked and water flowed freely and strong up throughout the attached pipes. It was all the way up to the the valve that I had with me in the bathroom. When I connected the pump back in the pit area there was one good suction but not emptying. I have a small area flooded in my basement but it is not getting worse or better. What else can I check?

    You may want to check for an obstruction in your drain line

      What sort of pipe is connected to the pump?????????????
      If it is steel scrap it and go for class 12 plastic. Make sure you put a check valve straight off the pump as well

        Something else, are you sure that the pump has the berries to push the water as high as you need. Di you look at hte pump curve or did the salesman take advantage of you
