A Few Possible Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons, including:

  • Power loss
  • Lack of maintenance
  • The unit is too small
  • Sloppy installation
  • Icy or blocked drain lines
  • Age (the average life span is 10 years)

We’ll take a look at your pump during our visit and provide preventive maintenance suggestions, helping make sure your sump pump won’t quit when you need it most.

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few simple things you can do to make sure your sump pump is prepared for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Check that the pump is positioned correctly and not leaning to one side as this can cause the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump runs and pumps out the water efficiently.
  5. In dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
