Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power interruption
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frozen or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is straight and not tipping to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump turns on and pulls out the water quickly.
  5. During arid forecasts, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
