Is the water draining/ejecting from the pit? Check the one way check valve might be blocked up. Let us know how it goes.

Sounds good now.

But where did that piece of plastic come from?
Was it something flushed down the toilet?
Or part of the check valve?
Maybe just some junk dropped in there during pump installation?

Meanwhile, the check valve looks to be closing after the pump cycle, so all seems well for now.
