The water table at that spot might be at that level during dry weather conditions.

The water table would be expected to be higher under wet conditions hence the need for the sump pump.

The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
