Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Lack of maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Make sure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and pulls out the water rapidly.
  5. During arid conditions, take out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
