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 cease working for a couple of different reasons:

  • No power
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Frosted over or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is straight and not leaning to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump starts and pulls out the water rapidly.
  5. During arid forecasts, remove 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 clear.
