Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power interruption
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few simple things you can do to make sure your sump pump is prepared for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not run when called for.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump turns on and drains the water efficiently.
  5. During dry weather, 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 isn’t plugged.
