Recently my sump pump has been turning on approx every 20 minutes to discharge incomming water. For the first 14 years in the house there has been very little, if any, water. I did have an automatic sprinkler running for an hour each day over the summer, but the sump has now been running for the last 4 weeks after the sprinkler has been turned off.
Is there a way to determine if it is just ground water or a more serious problem? What kind of a discharge hose should I use outside to carry water away from the house and prevent freezing in the discharge line itself?
