Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to ensure your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Make sure the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Confirm the pump is upright and not tipping to one side, since this can lead the pump to not activate when called for.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, pour a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump runs and pulls out the water quickly.
  5. During dry weather, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can get small stones in the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
