My sump never over flows. I would have the problem as to when the electric goes out the siphon for the over flow box and the pump would stop. Then when the power comes back on the sump pump comes on but the siphon for the over flow box doesnt start, resulting in the pump dumping all water from sump into the tank and over flowing that way.
