Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Ensure the pump is vertical and not tipping to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  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 rapidly.
  5. During arid 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. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
