Discovered this sump pit completely full and about 5 minutes away from overflowing into the basement of this home! The culprit was a much too long extension on the discharge pipe which had frozen, causing a blockage. Make sure your sump pump discharge pipe is as short as possible, sloped appropriately, and keep the end of the pipe out of the snow to avoid it freezing up!
