My home is approximately a year old. The sump pump that was installed in the house used to run ok (a little noisy), but now it runs continuously. I tried unplugging it and then plugging it back in. It appeared to fix the issue at first but I am back to the constant running again. Any ideas?
Two things come to mind. The first is the float is getting stuck along the side of the tank and staying in the up position. This prevents the pump from turning off. Look down inside the sump and check to see if that is the issue. The second is an extreemly wet area. If the water is coming in all the time, the pump will keep running.
