Well Ive been fighting problems with my sump.. The problem i have is my pump is feeding water back to tank quicker that I can supply it. I know about the gate valve/T back to sump to cut back on the pumps GPH
but i really think their may be another problem.. This is what I have..
3' long 11" wide and 10 3/4 deep
3 baffels...... from the right hand side of the sump to the first baff is
21 3/4 next is 22 3/4 with a 1" gap on the bottom next 23 3/4.. Baff 1 and 3 are 1 3/4 from the top of the sump. I've had 2 1" ID feed lines to my over flow box and the pump still pumps faster.. The pump is a Supreme Classic 700 gph
. From pump to tank I have increased from 1/2 mpt to 3/4 sch 40 2 45s and 3 90s so I would expect some head pressure loss say 650 gph
?? My over flow box is 12" long 3" wide and 10" deep with 1 baff 4 1/2 from my stand pipe the baff is 5" tall .. I could run 2 1" ID feed lines but I think thats over kill I do have a ball valve in place to reduce flow to sump but I don't want to have to worrie about 2 1" lines failing I'm lost what do I do? Lower the last baff so water makes it to the pump faster? Man I'm lost hope you guys can understand all this
