You likely don’t think about your sump pump until there’s a downpour. Then you hope it’s draining correctly so your Dayton basement doesn’t sustain water damage.

Sump pumps can stop working for several various reasons.

We’ve witnessed it all. If your pump isn’t running like it should, call the Experts at Stevenson Service Experts to investigate the problem.

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and offer preventive maintenance tips, so it won’t quit when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for several different reasons:

  • No power
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Confirm 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 check the pump runs and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During arid 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.
