Is my sump pump running too long?
Hi! I have a Simer 3988–01, ¾ HP Submersible Sump Pump. Approximately 2 years old. It is acting kinda strange. It takes around 5 seconds to clear the tank, but continues to run another 20 seconds before it shuts off, even though it has clearly done it’s job. I took the unit out, it seems clear of debris and the floater seems to be operating correctly. I’m no plumber or sump pump expert… any thoughts? I don’t think it is supposed to keep running like that. Am I wrong? Will it burn out? Here is a short video:
