Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit working for several different reasons:

  • Frozen or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not run when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump starts and pulls out the water quickly.
  5. During drought-like conditions, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can get small stones in the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole isn’t plugged.
