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

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease operating for a couple of different reasons:

  • Power loss
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Icy or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy 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. Make sure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in anticipation of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is upright and not tilting to one side, since this can cause the pump to not activate when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and drains the water efficiently.
  5. During arid conditions, 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 free of obstructions.
