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

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power interruption
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frozen or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to verify 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 anticipation of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is upright and not tipping to one side, since this can lead the pump to not run when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, drop a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During drought-like conditions, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
