The paint sink is not usable at the moment because the sump pump has to be on and working or else the water will overflow. The sump pump is also not supposed to be running consistently. It usually turns on intermittently to suck the water out. Several months ago the outlet started to trip occasionally. Last week I walked into StageCraft to an overflowing sink- the pump had turned off and its tank leaking. I reset the outlet and it turned back on. Later that night it overflowed again and the outlet stopped functioning. I was cleaning brushes yesterday with the pump attached to a different outlet and the motor was consistently running (which it’s not supposed to do). Then I plugged it back into its original outlet and it immediately tripped causing a huge spark. I think the pump is the problem but the outlet should be checked too.
