Water Level above sump pump

Recommended Posts

Depending on the power of the pump. Most will start to suck air at around 2-3 inches above the pump.

It's always a good idea to mark Max and Min lines on your sump.

Work out the level that your pump starts to suck air and mark that as the minimum.

Then turn the pump off and wait for the tanks to stop draining, Fill the sump to the top, Turn the pump back on for about 5min then Mark the water level in the sump as your maximum water level.

Just one part [MENTION=12614]Al32[/MENTION] what's the point of filling the sump right up to the top what does this do and it may sound stupid but I just take the water out of the main tank other wise I will have a flood
