Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop operating for a couple of different reasons:

  • No power
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frozen or clogged 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 prepared for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is straight and not tilting to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump starts and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like 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. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole isn’t plugged.
