Sump Pump Struggle

I recently discovered part of my basement dirt wall fell in during a rain storm burying my sump pump.

Needless to say it was not pumping water all that well any more lol! So I got busy digging out the old pump.

One bucket at a time lol! After I dug and cleaned it out I placed some blocks to prevent my new sump pump from getting buried and burning up. Ta da!

We will see how it does in the next rain storm. Prayers please lol!
