Shower Sump

I have replaced the shower sump pump, the check valve and cleaned or replaced the hoses on my shower pump out system Problem: the darn thing still won't work right. I hook everything up, turn it on and it works sort of once then no more! I remove a hoer at the pump, put it back on and it works once then no more. Frustrating at the least. Any ideas or suggestions??

Re: Shower Sump

When you say it does not work does the pump not turn on or it has I suction? If the later look for a clogged hose or filter or intake or a loose clamp

Re: Shower Sump

How about the fitting at the shower floor? Corroded, hair ball ??

Most shower sumps work very slowly. Are you sure its not pumping at all?

Re: Shower Sump

You should have a vented loop in that system. Check to see if it is working.
