Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • No power
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Frozen or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is upright and not tipping to one side, since this can cause the pump to not run when called for.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump turns on and drains the water rapidly.
  5. During arid conditions, take 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.
