Default Urgent! Sump pump question

Hello, I am house sitting while my parents are on vacation and I don<t understand my fathers system. I called him and he said he lets the water get high so the pump does not run all the time.

The way the float is setup the water has to be over the weeping tile tubes in order to start. However, I shaked it and emptied the sump pump hole and the weeping tile tubes started to pour water like there was no tomorrow.

My dad says all is fine, but I don<t think he understands what I am trying to explain. If the water gets above the tubes, will the weeping tiles continue to fill the hole ? I feel like it will backlog in the weeping tiles causing water around the house.
