We’ll examine your pump during our visit and offer preventive maintenance advice, so it won’t quit when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons:

  • No power
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is straight and not tilting to one side, since this can cause 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 make sure the pump runs and pulls out the water quickly.
  5. During arid forecasts, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
