Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • No power
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frozen or plugged 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 primed for efficiency.

  1. Ensure the cord is in acceptable 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 activate when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During arid conditions, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can get small stones in the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
