Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons, like:

  • Power loss
  • Ignoring maintenance
  • The unit is too small
  • Sloppy installation
  • Ice-covered or clogged drain lines
  • Age (the average pump lasts 10 years)

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and provide preventive maintenance suggestions, helping make sure your sump pump won’t quit when you need it most.

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a number of simple things you can do to make sure your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is positioned correctly and not tilting to one side as this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, drop a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and drains the water rapidly.
  5. In dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
