I have just replaced my submersible sump pump and I notice that it will periodically not shut-off. I have found that the float will rest against the side of the pit and prevent the shut-off. I have repositioned the pump but can't seem to keep it level.
Would it be a bad idea to place an object in the pit for the pump to rest on to keep it level; i.e. a round patio stone?
I don't want to burn up the pump so I need to come up with some kind of solution. Thanks.
