Hello, we are building in a fairly flat area. Thus far, the sump pump is kicking on every 15 seconds or so, then it stops for 15 seconds and then kicks back on. The pump we bought is a heavy duty pump with a back up.

My question is: How long will my pump last kicking on and running 30 seconds out of every minute? I would greatly appreciate any advice!

Thanks, Tom

Tom,

Is the sump pump you purchased from Basement Systems? A good sump pump system (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_waterproofing/waterproofing_products/sump_pump/) with annual maintenance can last a good five years, but Zoeller (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_waterproofing/waterproofing_products/sump_pump/zoeller_sump_pump.php), the manufacturer of the sump pumps we use and the best we've found on the market after extensive testing, are only warranted for 1 year.

If you have a Basement Systems sump pump (http://www.basementsystems.com/sump_pump/) system like our TripleSafe (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_waterproofing/waterproofing_products/sump_pump/triplesafe_sump_pump.php), SuperSump (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_waterproofing/waterproofing_products/sump_pump/super_sump_pump.php), or SmartSump (http://www.basementsystems.com/crawlspace/crawlspace_products/crawlspace_sump_pump.php) systems, and sign up for the annual maintenance program we offer, you will experience better and longer performance from your sump pump.

How much is the annual maintenance program for a SuperSump and what do they do?

Tom,

Call the dealer who installed your system. They will be able to give you the cost and what they will do to service it.
