[quote=AllanJ;950994]If you remove the sump pump (or unplug it) but don't fill in the pit yet, how high
will the water ever get?
Are there drain pipe ends (or pipe ends from unknown origins) emptying water into the pit?[/Hi, the water fills the pit to about 6 inches from the top (allot of water). the pump was connected to an outlet pipe, but no water appears to be draining back, water seems to seep through the earth. I currently use a standard Submersible dirty water drain pump when needed, the garage is at the bottom of my garden so no fear of flooding anywhere else "hopefully"]
