Our hard-working emergency maintenance guy put in a new sump pump for us yesterday, and let me tell you, I am intensely interested by sump pumps, and delighted that ours is working fine.

  1. This is Mark’s Dad. We have a sump pump, acutally a second one. I replaced an old one with a new one. The only time I worry is when the electric power fails during a heavy rain! Then I pray a lot.


  2. Ah, the sump pump. I have known the exploration and intimacy, the frustration and betrayal, the wholehearted trust and vulnerability that comes with the sump pump, and with the low-lying foundation that calls for a sump pump.

    Thanks for the memories…I think.

  3. One thing you might consider is adding a sump pump or high water alarm, or a backup sump pump (one that runs under its own power.)
