Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons:

  • Power loss
  • 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 easy things you can do to verify your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not tipping to one side, since this can cause the pump to not run when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and drains the water rapidly.
  5. During dry forecasts, take out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
