Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease working for several different reasons:

  • No power
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few quick things you can do to verify your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Ensure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is straight and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not run when required.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During arid conditions, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can get small stones in the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
