I live in Niagara Penninsula and have purchased a new home in August 2001.
The Sump Pump is 3 ft. depth and 20 in. in diameter and made of plastic with a sumersible pump.
There is a small hole about the size of a pin about 6 inches up from the bottom on the side of the liner.
Water continues to pour out slowly.
Can I plug or patch this hole???
The builder gave me a tube of Weather sheild Black Gold roofrepair sealant. It says it can be applied in wet or dry conditions. This did not work as the pressure of the water forced a hole in the sealant at the weekest point.
What do u recommend.
Should the liner be replaced and can it be?
A sealant for the hole??
I think that the hole is just below the water table.
The soil is clay.
There is a drainage pipe for water to flow in to the sump pump at the top of the sump pump.( the plastic pipe similar to ibstalled around foundation.
