We have done our sump pump installation
a few years back. Recently, we noticed that bad smell is coming from the pit. I think the smell is coming from the sump pump hole. The sump pump pit can be clogged with the debris or sludge. I’m looking for easy tips to solve this issue. Is it safe to put a little bleach into it? I’m afraid whether it damages the sump.
I just come across an article describing the easy methods to get rid of the smell.
Disconnect the sump pump from the electrical outlet and leave it to pump the gunk out.
Spray the sump pit with a garden hose. Again allow it to pump the gunk out
Repeat it until water is clear.
Clean the pit using bleach
Add some oil in it to block the smell.
Can I refer this steps to clean my sump pump? Any suggestions will be a great help. Many thanks.
