What is this thing in my basement
 
3 Attachment(s)

Hi Guys-

I have something installed in a 6" deep well in my basement floor that I can't identify. I'm assuming it's an old pump of some sort, but there is no electrical service to it that I can see. I've attached photos. For size reference, the bricks around the edge are regular sized.

I'd like to get it out of there to make room for a sump pump but I don't want to do anything stupid.

What the heck is this thing?

Hi-

Thanks again for helping me ID this thing in my basement.

It's dry and I've cleaned it up a bit --I've attached better photos.

The bolted on plate is definitely thicker than I thought.

I have room to put in a sump pump next to this thing so that's what I'll do-- I'm just going to leave it alone.

Best Regards,

Nate Greene
