    Having been in the pump industry for around 15 years both on the tools and off, it strikes me that (now i don’t mean to be to rude!) you ‘ve been given what i would call not sound advice! or no one has a clue!

    If you would like some advice please drop me a line

    P.S I do like the comment of “its not complicated to repair a sump pump, although i have not opted to do this as yet” How the hell would you know then!!!!!!!

    Nick you raise a valid point in the world of the interent and niche content. PErhaps there is a problem with sites being authored by non-experts. What is their purpose? Some think they are mercernaries seeking to profit from a niche that nobody has really done well on the internet. I myself would much rather learn about sump pumps from an expert of 15 years, not a 19 year old, but then again i dont think much harm is being done with mr wold’s website. Mr Wood isn’t dumb, he’s a smart business man, but not expert. Those equipped with the most integrous and best knowledge will pass their information forward and influence the world. Remember that Mr. Wold :)

    I am interested in the process of selecting a knowledgeable person to investigate where to install and to then to install a sump pum in my celler. I should mention that I live close to the ocean and do not have a water problem that covers the entire basement floor. It usually takes at least 5/6inches of rain over a short period 5 days. Also the floor is quite thin with dirt underneath and the water seeps up from under this thin floor. Also, I presently have a sump pump that does not appear to be in the “lowest” spot in the cellar. Also it does not activate itself in a timely fashion. I would appreciate some candid advise as I am concerned that in putting a second one in I will have perhaps encourage more water to gather and not solve my problem which is reallly quite minor and mostly a nusance .

      Hi Nancy,
      In regard to another sump pit drawing water.
      This is a good thing, as it will draw water away
      from other areas of your basement.
      If you install a good high volume pump, it will pump more often at first, but it can actually lower the water table around your house, which will keep everything more dry. At that time the pump will run less often. The pit should be slightly deeper that the level of you foundation walls.
