Sump pumps can cease working for a couple of different reasons.

We’ll take a look at your pump during our visit and offer preventive maintenance suggestions, so it won’t go out when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power interruption
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frosted over or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to ensure your sump pump is prepared for efficiency.

  1. Make sure the cord is in acceptable shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not run when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump turns on and drains the water rapidly.
  5. During drought-like conditions, take out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
