Why Does My Pump Keep Running?

Constantly running sump pumps can be a cause of stress for a homeowner. The thought of having that much water moving around under your house can be unsettling. Her are the facts though:

If your pump kicks on with high regularity then it only means two things: the pump works, and that you have a lot of water under your floor in that particular area. In high excess of water you may need another pump. This is depending on whether you have a properly installed interior drainage system. If not more pumps will not solve/prevent a leak. Only a good drainage system will do that. If, on the other hand, you have no interior drainage but just a pump then it is very likely that pump would run very often after a rain. Whether it could be over run depends on your conditions and how you interior system is installed.
