The sump pump installed 2 years ago is found to malfunction. During downpour, I
can see water receding back all over the basement… When does this happen?
Should I go for a complete replacement of the sump pump?

Valve may have been installed backwards or the drain pipe may be clogged inside

Install the new pump above the sump and run water and drain lines. A
battery-powered pump is a great backup for your main sump pump, especially if
your house is supplied by a well.
