Why is My Sump Pump Not Working?

There are several reasons your sump pump may not be functioning properly. Recent power failure, improper installation, switch problems, clogged discharge lines, general defects, and more can cause problems with your sump pump’s performance.

To see if your sump pump is working correctly, first unplug it and plug it back in. There are usually two separate plugs, and you’ll want to unplug both of them. Then, plug in only the one for the sump pump. If it doesn’t turn on quickly, you should schedule repair.

You can also run water through your sump pump to test if it is working. Just run enough to raise the float until the pump starts, then watch to see if the water actually gets pumped out of the hole. If it doesn’t, call your local plumber for repair immediately.

  • Water spraying from pump
  • A sump pump that is running too often or nonstop
  • Frozen sump pump
  • Sump pump that keeps tripping your breaker

How Long Does a Sump Pump Last?

On average, a sump pump lasts about 10 years. This can also depend on the frequency of use, quality of sump pump, distance the pump must transfer water to discharge, and more.

If your sump pump is 10 years old or older, you are constantly dealing with malfunctions, or your sump pump is consistently performing poorly, it is likely time to consider sump pump replacement rather than repair.
