Ever seen pink fiberglass batt and masking tape used to insulate supply piping?

It was a real pro job.

The masking tape had even been stapled to the floor joists for extra protection.

Now that is attention to detail.

Pictures just don't do justice to this DIY arrangement...
Ground water, main level machine machine, kitchen sink, dishwasher, AC condensate, and basement laundry tub all drain into the sump pit. Pump is connected to a home made extension cord using old BX wire that is hard wired to a switch box.
Third picture shows the water stains and mould on the wall in front of the sump pit...

This is wallpaper used to hold insulation in place because it got wet and heavy, and the paper backing wouldn't hold it any more.

Don't fix the leak, or replace the moldy insulation, just wall paper over it.

Oh, the wall paper didn't hold it either.

edit? lets try these...
