 sump discharge
Author: colorfuldude (IN)

Here is the mystery of mysteries. I have a crawl space. My neighbor knocked and said my discharge pipe has been discharging water non-stop for a day or so. I never knew it was doing it because its behind my detached garage.

When I looked in my crawl, there's a foot of water down there , but the pump itself IS NOT RUNNING! How in the world is water coming out non stop?

Maybe you have a leak in your domestic water lines and the water is just running out ?

Pictures would help us not to speculate. What you are describing is not suppose to happen.

Can you help us .... help you?
