Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease running for a couple of different reasons:

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

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few simple things you can do to ensure your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump turns on and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like conditions, take 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 isn’t plugged.
