You likely don’t think about your sump pump until there’s a downpour. Then you hope it’s working correctly so your San Antonio basement doesn’t flood.

Sump pumps can cease running for a few various reasons.

We’ve seen it all. If your pump isn’t running properly, get in touch with the Experts at San Antonio Air Service Experts to determine the problem.

We’ll take a look at your pump during our visit and offer preventive maintenance advice, so it won’t go out when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop running for a few different reasons:

  • Power loss
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frozen or blocked 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 good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is vertical and not leaning 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 check the pump starts and removes the water rapidly.
  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.
