We are renting a house in South Dakota and know very little about sump pumps. We are being flooded with the heavy rains and snow that fell in October just melted into the ground now in April. The rain has nowhere to go and the sump pump runs water day and night. No info was left by the owners and I don't know what the pump is doing, or where all the water is going. Sounds dumb I know, but I am afraid that all of a sudden the pump will stop and all the water will ruin everything in the family room and bedrooms. Any help out there?
