Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power loss
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Icy or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 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. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is upright and not tilting to one side, since this can lead the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and drains the water rapidly.
  5. During drought-like conditions, 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 free of obstructions.
