Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease working for a few different reasons:

  • Power interruption

  • Icy or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not run when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, dump a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and drains the water quickly.
  5. During arid forecasts, take 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 clear.
