You likely don’t think about your sump pump until it rains hard. Then you expect it’s draining properly so your London basement doesn’t sustain water damage.

Sump pumps can stop draining for several various reasons.

We’ll inspect your pump during our visit and give you preventive maintenance tips, so it won’t quit when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a couple of 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 ensure your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Make sure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify 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, dump a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and removes the water quickly.
  5. During dry forecasts, pull 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 clear.
