Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for several different reasons:

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

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify 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 dry forecasts, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
