Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons:

  • No power
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to make sure your sump pump is prepared 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. Confirm the pump is upright and not tipping to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and pulls out the water quickly.
  5. During arid forecasts, remove 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.
