We’ve handled it all. If your pump isn’t working properly, contact the Experts at Strand Brothers Service Experts to determine the problem.

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and give you preventive maintenance tips, so it won’t stop when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons:

  • No power
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or plugged 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. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump turns on and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
