Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease working for a few different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frozen or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span 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 good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Verify 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 check the pump runs and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like weather, 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.
