I have been living in my current house for 9 months and our sump pump runs constantly even when there is a drought. Over the summer we did not have rain for 2 months and it would still run every 5-10 minutes. When it does rain it will run every 10 seconds for weeks and then 20-30 seconds for weeks etc. But when it does rain no water comes from the drain tile pipe. It all comes from the side of the pit. The pit has holes in it and water comes from the holes and what appears to be from bottom of the pit. We have a back up pump that runs off water pressure and an alarm to notify when pumps may fail. My question is do I in fact have a "high water table" or is something wrong with my pit? Thank you in advance for any recommendations.
