Waste sump for basement toilet question
We recently moved into a house that has a finished basement with bath. My question is this:
When I flush the basement toilet, the sump pump in the sealed basin will run for about 5 seconds and then shut off. It seems to me that there should be longer cycle time between flushes.
I am thinking that the float on the Zoeller pump is somehow not operating properly. Other than that, the system seems to work perfectly. No odors, leaks, etc.
The toilet is hardly used and in fact since we moved in, I have been flushing it daily with the hope of correcting the frequent flushing.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I have not yet got the nerve yet to open the basin. I am very familiar with ground water basement sumps, but a sewer sump to me is another level.
