Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop running for a few different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Frozen or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to make sure your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Ensure the cord is in acceptable shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is straight and not tilting to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump turns on and pulls out the water quickly.
  5. During dry forecasts, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
