I am about to finish off my basement and I am concerned that the sound of the water draining into my sump pump pit is going to become extremely annoying once I find myself in the basement more often. Basically, its a slow and steady dripping noise....not a constant flow of water just a persisent dripping noise. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I have had the same issue along with a few others and began to research methods to fix them.

I have heard/read a few solutions;

1. Using an old bike tire [or similar] attached to the drainage pipe to create a slower water drop.

2. Raise the sump pump so the standing water sits closer to the drainage pump [less distance to drip].

3. Install a better [air tight or thicker] lid for the pit.

I would like to note, I am NOT a plumber nor do I have any plumbing experience. This is purely based on my own research for the same problem. I have yet to implement any of these mentioned [proposed] solutions. However, I thought I would share them to give some ideas for your own search adventures.

I wish the best. Good luck.
