Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons:

  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Frosted over 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 prepared 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 straight and not leaning to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump turns on and removes the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like conditions, pull 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 isn’t plugged.
