I noticed that there is what looks like a drum under ground level in the basement with pvc pipes running down into it from the basement bathroom. I also noticed it makes a pump sound once in a blue moon, for a short duration. The electrical cord that comes out of the top of this drum looking container says sump pump. I noticed yesterday the pump sound going on...and never shutting off. Running continuously.....so I unplugged it for fear it would burn out. What is going on?? How can this be corrected? My home is not on sewer but septic system, if that has any meaning. Someone told me it could be a bad relay switch or that the plunger is not working correctly.....PLEASE OFFER THIS NON-TECHNICAL PERSON ADVICE OF WHAT I NEED TO DO? No one uses the downstairs bathroom, but very rarely, if someone is staying over from out of town and stays in the basement bedroom. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP......
