We have lived in this house for two years now and every spring we get water near the sump pump hole in the basement. Here are the problems we are having:
1. Water puddles near the sump pump hole in the basement floor. It looks like it is coming in where the floor meets the wall. What is the best way to deal with this?
2. Our sump pump runs every 10-15 minutes this time of year and it is quite annoying as it can be heard through out the house. Can I replace the sump pump with a submersible pump? Are there quiter models avalible?
