I just moved into a new house that was built in 1950. It has a very odd sump pump configuration. When the pump turns on, the water comes up the pipe, runs through a check valve, then runs to a T where most of the water runs right back down to the sump pump, and a little bit is spit back outside. I have attached a picture. Does anyone know if I can cut off the pipe that runs back down and put in an elbow instead to push the water out? My pump is running like crazy!!!
