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

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

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

  • Power loss
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Frozen or plugged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and pulls out the water rapidly.
  5. During arid weather, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
