A little rain
When will it ever stop? Seems like it's been going for weeks now. I heard a humming noise I hadn't heard before this morning, so went to investigate. I found our second sump pump humming away and the water level in the pit wasn't dropping. So I went to investigate outside, but sure enough water was coming out. Unfortunately the pipe separated above the ground where it feeds into some drains we have running around the house to the ditch by the street.
I had about 3" of standing water sitting against the foundation.
I was running late for work, but quickly grabbed my shop vac hoses and connected them to get the water away from the foundation. Though some of that was probably seeping right back down into the pit, I think our water table is just up right now and can expect to hear that running for a few days. The other one in our crawlspace has also been cycling about every 5 minutes for a few days now.
