Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop running for several different reasons:

  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frosted over or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when required.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
