Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few quick things you can do to verify your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Make sure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is vertical and not tipping to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and pulls out the water quickly.
  5. During dry forecasts, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
