Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease running for a couple of different reasons:

  • No power
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few quick things you can do to make sure your sump pump is prepared for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is straight and not leaning to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump starts and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During arid forecasts, take out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
