Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Irregular maintenance

  • Incorrect installation

  • Frosted over or plugged discharge lines

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Make sure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is straight and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and removes the water quickly.
  5. During dry forecasts, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
