Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to make sure your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is straight and not tipping to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when called for.
  4. If the pump hasn’t recently run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump starts and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During dry forecasts, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
