Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit working for a couple of different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few quick things you can do to make sure your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not tipping to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and drains the water quickly.
  5. During arid conditions, remove 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 isn’t plugged.
