radon mitigation system

I recently installed a new sump pump in my basement and also a radon mitigation system. The two systems are not connected to each other. The radon pipe that vents thru the basement wall to the outside is about 6 or 7 feet away from the sump pump. The sump pump is sealed. The radon fan is outside. The exterior radon pipe is not capped, which I understand is preferred.

It's been raining pretty heavily. I hear gurgling sounds in the radon pipe. The meter on the radon pipe appears the same as always.

I noticed the concrete floor is a little wet around the sump pump. Is the sump pump not working as it should, causing the radon system to be sucking water instead of radon gas?

I hate to get caught between the sump pump company and the radon company as to whose "owns" the problem - if it is a problem?
