I have a 7 yr. old house. For the first 6 years I had no water in the basement. During the past year, I have had three episodes of water. After the second one a month ago, I had a new RIGID 1/2 hp sump pump put in. During he past two rains, I have noticed the sump pump works fine for 15-20 minutes, then the water level rises quickly. After the rain stops, the pump runs continuously for hours and the water level doesn't drop much. I even unplugged the pump and the water level didnt rise. Also, I have four window wells with a drain in each. During the last rain, the water looked like it was not going down the drains. any advise?
