Sump Spraying Water From Base While Pumping


Hello. I order a sump pump kit online. I followed the instructions. The pump is cast iron. I filled the basin up with water to test it out. It pumps out water fine but I noticed water is spraying from the base (where the base is bolted to the main pump). I would assume there would be a seal there and it would only leak if there is to much pressure?

Never had a sump pump before not sure if this is normal or not. It is pumping water to the outside fine. Just want to make sure before the return policy expires.

I have the sump pump on bricks inside the basin. I have the check valve coming off the sump pump then to the discharge drainage....
