Sump Water

Hi Rich
Your sump pump wil continue to operate until the water table drops below the level of you pump. If the water table is very high the pressure of the water will fill you sump real fast. If you have pipes around your foundation as I do your pump will continue to run until the water table drops below that level. It will stop if the rain does, it could take some time. Just keep a eye on the pump and make sure it is plugged into a outlet that always has power. I made that mistake and ran mine on a extension cord and forgot to plug it in ( result was 6 inches of water in my new basement.
Hope this helps
