Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease working for a few different reasons:

  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in acceptable shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event 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 recently run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump turns on and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like weather, pull out 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.
