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 blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is straight and not tipping to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not run when required.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump runs and removes 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 clear.
