Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease running for several different reasons:

  • Power loss
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few quick things you can do to verify your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump turns on and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During dry forecasts, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
