Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist
There are a few quick things you can do to verify your sump pump is primed for efficiency.
- Check that the cord is in decent shape.
- Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
- Confirm the pump is upright and not tilting to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not run when needed.
- If the pump hasn’t recently run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and pulls out the water efficiently.
- During dry conditions, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
- Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole isn’t plugged.
