Sump pumps can stop running for a few numerous reasons.

We’ll take a look at your pump during our visit and give you preventive maintenance tips, so it won’t go out when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop running for a few different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frosted over or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not activate when called for.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During drought-like conditions, pull out 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.
