Sump pump question - Southern NJ
I live in Cherry Hill, NJ where we have had lots and lots of rain in June and some days in July. The last day that we had lots of rain was last Friday - July 12.
Yesterday, I noticed that the area in which my sump pump drains is absolutely soaked and muddy. It is about 10 feet away from my house. Doing some observation yesterday, I "think" the sump pumped out about 5-6 times yesterday/today.
I would have thought that since it has not rained in 5 days that there wouldn't be much water going into the sump pit anymore? Or could this continual water be because of the overall excessive rains in June and a little in July affecting groundwater?
I have my plumber coming to check it out tomorrow but I would sincerely appreciate hearing any advice/experiences. Thanks!!!
