I've been in my house for about 6 years and I'm already on my 3rd sump pump. When we get steady rain my sump pump runs literally every 30 sec for almost a week. I bought the best sump pump I could get with an electronic switch, (because that is what fails on all my pumps). Pennsylvania has been very rainy lately and my pump has been running furiously for a long time.
My pump discharges into a pipe outside my house that is underground and I assume leads underground towards the front of my house.
Why am I getting so much water underground? What can I do to make it stop? This continuous pumping is driving me crazy. Help!
