Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop operating for a few different reasons:

  • Incorrect installation

  • Frozen or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is straight and not leaning to one side, since this can cause the pump to not activate when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During dry 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. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
