I have 2 sump pits in my basement. I have never had water in the basement, but did have damp walls and wet cinder blocks.
One sump pit had about 2" of water in it, the other was bone dry
It rained hard about a week ago, both sump pits filled up (no water in the basement though) and both pumps pumped water out about every 3 minutes. That has gone on now constantly for 5 days.
It only rained for an afternoon, we got about 4", it's been dry and warm the last 4 days and both pumps still run every 3 mintues all day, every day.
Why would this be ? It's almost as if my house is now sitting on a lake or the sump pits have tapped a ground well or something.
Any help, advice or comments would be great.
