I absolutely HATE working on my house -- I'd rather be out in the barn freezing to death working on a front-wheel-drive car!
I have a room upstairs completely gutted (wife did all of it) & I don't have one ounce of motivation to finish it..... and winter is coming quick -- in the 30's tonight!!

They're not completely dry yet, but all that deep water is gone. The sump is still draining without the pump, which is good. On the dirt side, I can't get a siphon started because the hose has worn holes in it from rubbing against the rocks when the pump kicks on.
No damage though (thought the indirect boiler electronics were gonna be fried.....),........... & I didn't get electrocuted wading around down there!

With that sort of problem, I'd install two sumps with Zoeller pumps. They will keep up with demand and your floor will be dry.
I've been planning on doing just that for years. Never can make time for it. Last week I had time, but there was 5 tons of coal blocking my way!
