sump pump pit size

Post by Rameffert » Sun Nov 25, 2018 4:55 pm

My basement floods . The sump pit is square and old 1945. If I put in a bigger pit will that reduce the water level faster? The water is coming up through where new support columns were installed. Suggestions

A larger pit only gives more space for water to collect, if you need to increase your ejection rate to keep up with an increased amount of water, that would indicate the need for a larger pump and plumbing to handle a larger volume of water.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
