Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop operating for several different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Icy or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Make sure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not tilting to one side, since 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 starts and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can get small stones in the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
