I'm trying to test my sump pump. (Stevens Pump Co Model S5710.) Unfortunately, every time I load the pit (crock/well/etc.) with water, the level drops right back to where it started from. (I guess the soil beneath is absorbing it.) I've loaded about 6-7 gallons. There isn't a float.
The product description states that the water level control is isolated. I read this to mean there is an interior "float" mechanic which I cannot reach to test.
Any advice would be great, and pronto, as we have Frankenstorm coming.
