If there is no running water do you wash your laundry in a laundry tub?

Some laundry tubs do hookup to plumbing supplies, and hand wash-only clothing can be washed this way. However, laundry tubs can also be used if there is no access to running water, by using whatever source of water is available. If water is not clean, some will choose to boil it before using it to wash clothing, and this will also allow you to wash clothing in hot water if needed.

How long should a submersible pump run?

If a pump is running for long periods, it can indicate a blocked inlet or outlet. Check for water present when it is running, as the switch could be sticking in the running position. Running dry will damage the pump, and a slow-working pump risks an overflow or other damage.
