    I have a sump pump discharge line on the exterior wall of my home . Just lately , I have noticed that the overflow elbow is spitting water . I measured about 16 ounces overnight. This just started and I am wondering what might be causing the water to discharge from this elbow. Could a partial blockage of the pipe cause this ? Thanks , Bob SP Pipe.jpg
