Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Incorrect installation

  • Icy or plugged discharge lines

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 vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump turns on and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During 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. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
