Reasons Behind a Sump Pump Failure

Sump Pump Failure
  • 1. Overwhelmed pump: If your sump pump isn't of the right size, it might not be able to handle high volumes of water, which can leave you with a flooded basement. Sometimes a single pump isn't enough.

  • 2. Pump burn-out: A sump pump can burn out because of a faulty float switch or an overworked, underpowered pump. Cheap pumps made with inexpensive materials and components are prone to sump pump failure, especially when they’re needed most during extremely wet weather.

  • 3. Power loss/outage: There are several reasons why a pump might lose power. It could be a tripped circuit breaker, unplugged pump, or power outage. No matter what the reason, a normal sump pump doesn't function unless there's power.

  • 4. Clogged intake: When the intake becomes clogged, this prevents the pump from extracting water from the sump pit or sump liner.

  • 5. Frozen/clogged discharge line: The discharge pipe is what carries water from your sump pump outside the home. The pipe can become clogged with dirt, rocks, roots, and other debris. In the wintertime, any water in the discharge line can freeze and clog the system.
