View Full Version : Super Pump Standing Water?

Hi family;

Quick question, I recently had two pumps installed, one fills and is pumped to the
other and then out. What about the standing water in these pump basins? If there is water in them, but not high enough to start the pump, and then we have a dry spell, the standing water? are we supposed to
put anything in there to prevent stagnation, whatever. Flush it once and awhile,
or ? I am not worried about the mosquito problem that we have outside up here in the North East. (Nile virus, etc).
Is this a problem and is their action to take. ?

Welcome back.
If it was one of our sump pumps (http://www.basementsystems.com/sump_pump/), the super (http://www.basementsystems.com/sump_pump/) or TripleSafe, (http://www.basementsystems.com/sump_pump/) it will have an airtight lid included in the system, so you do not need to flush the sump.

Thank you.
