I am looking at a existing home to purchase. The home inspector was concerned because there is a constant flow of water into the hole for the pump. the water even though it was flowing constantly was not filling up the hole and the pump was not turning on. The pump works, but the concern is where is the water coming from and where is it going.

In my area there are several homes where under ground streams flow and this is a 24 -7 on going process.

What you may want to consider is unplugging one of the sump pumps and note how high the water level goes , you want to know in case of a power outage.

The water should also be tested to make sure it underground clear water rather then a broken sewer line of back up from a cesspool

You can have a plumber dye test the water to see where it actually exists and you may want to get a battery back up sump pump.

Just remember your electric bill will be higher because your constantly pumping water.
