We’ll take a look at your pump during our visit and provide you with 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 several different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Frosted over or plugged 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 primed for efficiency.

  1. Make sure the cord is in acceptable shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump runs and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During dry forecasts, remove 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 is clear.
