Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit for various reasons, such as:

  • Power loss
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Insufficient capacity
  • Poor installation
  • Icy or blocked drain lines
  • Old (the average lifespan is 10 years)

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and provide preventive maintenance suggestions, helping you be sure you can count on your sump pump when you need it most.

Sump Pump Maintenance Guidelines

There are several simple things you can do to make sure your sump pump is in good working order.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is positioned correctly, not leaning to one side. This can prevent the pump from switching on when required.
  4. If it’s been a while since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit and turn on the pump to make sure it runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. In dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom; it can pull small debris in that will clog it.
  6. Make sure that the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
