Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop running for several different reasons:

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

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Make sure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During arid forecasts, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
