Upgrading Sump Pump/Pit
I wanted to get estimates for a new water-powered backup sump pump. We had a couple estimates, two of which recommended making our sump pit deeper and wider.
In the 2 years we have lived in the house we have not had water in the basement or any issues, the majority of the times it goes off is after a storm (we are re-doing the landscaping this summer).
He gave us what I think is a reasonable price (less than $2k) to put in a larger pit, new pump and water backup so I am seriously considering it.
I am giving pause as, not knowing much, I wonder if I could be asking for trouble for disturbing it when no water has come in the basement besides the pump. Conversely I think it could be good to have a larger pit/pump to be safe
Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on it.
