What Causes Sump Pump Failure?
There are a number of things that can lead to the failure of your sump pump. Knowing the most common causes will help you know when to call the professionals. The most common reasons why sump pumps fail are:
- The sump pump isn’t the right size for the home’s needs.
- The sump pump that wasn’t installed properly in the first place.
- Problems with the switch. This can happen when your sump pump moves from its place inside the basin, making the float unable to do its job.
- A lack of regular maintenance. Most manufacturers recommend running your sump pump every two to three months. Regular maintenance helps you spot small problems before they become big.
