Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop working for several different reasons:

  • Lack of maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation

  • 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 prepared for efficiency.

  1. Ensure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not tilting to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump starts and removes the water quickly.
  5. During drought-like weather, pull out 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.
