Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons:

  • Power loss
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is straight and not leaning to one side, since this can cause the pump to not run when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During dry conditions, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
