Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Failure of a sump pump can occur for a variety of reasons. The following are some of the most typical causes of sump pump failure-

  • Power Outage: An electrical power outage caused by bad weather or a storm is the most typical cause of sump pump failure. Sump pumps are powered by your home, therefore power outages might be an issue. Because power outages can occur at any time, having a backup generator is the best way to avoid them.
  • Lack of Maintenance: If your pump has suddenly stopped operating, it most likely only needs a thorough cleaning and some quarterly maintenance. To extend the life of your sump pump, you should have it serviced on a regular basis.
  • Stuck Switch: A stuck switch is one of the most prevalent mechanical issues with sump pumps. When the pump shifts inside the basement, the float operates the pump, causing the problem. It's also possible that debris will become stuck below the float, rendering it unusable.
  • Old Age: Years of wear and tear, like other devices, will eventually lead to the breakdown of your sump pump. A sump pump has an average lifespan of eight to ten years. Although some pumps can last longer, it is suggested that you replace your pump after ten years to guarantee safety and efficiency.
