A Few Possible Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons, like:

  • Power loss
  • Lack of maintenance
  • The unit is too small
  • Sloppy installation
  • Icy or plugged up drain lines
  • Age (the average life span is 10 years)

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and provide preventive maintenance suggestions, helping make sure your sump pump won’t quit when you need it most.

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are several simple things you can do to make sure your sump pump is primed 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 positioned correctly and not tipping to one side as this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. In dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
