I came out of my shower this morning to find my basement flooded because my ejector pit overflew. I tried unplugging and plugging my Zoeller pump in, but nothing.
I JUST had this pump installed maybe a month ago after my Ridgid pump from Home Depot that I installed in January crapped out.

I have one theory: a plumber friend of mine came to look at the pit cover after the pump was installed and jammed some old rags around the pipes because the pit was exposed. Is it possible that a rag fell into the pit and clogged the pump? How easy/hard is this to fix? Is my pump broke? Please give me some hopeful news :-(
