I'm now concerned that it is not working because I don't know if this new pump is very quiet when it operates. I can't tell from outside because where it drains is always soggy. I tried filling the pit with water when the table was low but the pit would not fill (not due to pump activity but I think because of water table).
The old pump we had a ball float that pumped the water when the float rose to a certain level. I don't see a float on the new pump, but it looks like there's a clear see through sensor the size of a dime on the top of the unit.
Can you tell me how I can test this, and how a submersible pump operates? Is it possible that the pump could be fully submerged but not operate until a higher level? How does one set the level for pumping?
My plumber is nowhere to be found :(
I have yet to see it working. The replacement
