How often should a sump pump run?

15 years ago

We have a brand new. three week old basement under our existing home. The mason put lots of tiling all the way around, extra around the window wells. We ran into an old natural creek nobody told us about pre basement planning. There was a LOT of water and a lot of mud. The sump pump does seem to run less than it did but it seems to me to run a lot, even on days with no rain.

How often should the sump pump be running and should it start running less? I'm assuming now that there is some grass and there are some plants that they'll absorb some of the excess water.
