THis morning i got a call around 8:30 am,it was my father in law.he told me his sump pump was not working all the time and the night before we had alot of rain.i went over and he was right i had to wiggle it back in fourth for it to pump.WE went to my buddies hardware store to get another pump for backup until i fix his original.well i got a wayne 1/2 horse which is the same as the ridgid sp 500.I had to get a check vave since there wasn't one installed when the house was built about 4 years ago. well i took out the pump that wasn't working wright which was a zoeller and discoverd that the float was coverd with sedement,but in the sump hole under the pump i found about 3 pieces of 1/2 inch copper tubing about 2 or 3 inches long and one about 6 inches,a few small pieces wood,and a bunch of pebbles and cement chips.well i donot think that is too cool for a 179000 dollar house.well any way i am . sure the zoeller pump was just getting obstructed with this debre.well he wanted a backup pump anyway.
