Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power loss
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Icy 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 decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is straight and not tipping to one side, since this can lead the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and drains the water efficiently.
  5. During dry forecasts, take out 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 free of obstructions.
