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

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease operating for several different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Icy or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is upright and not tipping to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when called for.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During arid weather, take out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
