Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit operating for a few different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frosted over or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few simple things you can do to verify your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is vertical and not tilting to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when called for.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and pulls out 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. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
