We just purchased a new home that backs up to a man made pond naturally fed, in a development with new contruction still going on. The sump pump in the basement runs continually approximately gallon a minute. Builder has installed a water powered back up and stated that once more homes are up the sump pump will work less. Our concern is
in the meantime is there any structural damage to the basement walls. Due to family emergencies, holdidays, work schedule, and my own surgery we were unable to procure our own inspector for the home before closing. We tried to recitfy this at closing with an escrow account for 48 hours until the inspector went through the house the builder threatened to sue. What should we do to ensure that the sump pump set up is okay and there is not any structural damage to basement. We have asked for a walk through with the builder to develop a punch list in the next thirty days.
