Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease running for a couple of different reasons:

  • Power loss
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 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. Make sure the cord is in acceptable shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can cause the pump to not run when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and pulls out the water rapidly.
  5. During arid weather, 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.
