I have a home with a B-dry system installed around the perimeter, which empties into a sump crock. A few years ago the pump float died -- it was a cheap Home Depot sump pump. Instead of replacing the pump, I added a float trigger that turned the power on/off to the pump through the power cord. In doing this, I allowed the water level in the sump crock to get higher, so it completely submerged the pipes emptying into the crock. I haven't had problems in 2 years but this season there was a LOT of rain. Now I have some dampness in the basement and think it's probably due to the pump allowing the water to get too high. I'm going to replace the pump. Question is, does this reasoning make sense, and if so, what's the best sump pump that I can get from a local HW store? Thanks!
