Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power loss
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or clogged 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. Make sure the cord is in acceptable shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not tilting to one side, since this can cause the pump to not run when called for.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump turns on and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like weather, remove 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 isn’t plugged.
