You probably don’t think about your sump pump until you need it. Then you expect it’s running correctly so your Knoxville basement doesn’t take on water.

We’ll inspect your pump during our visit and give you preventive maintenance advice, so it won’t quit when you need it most.


Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease working for a couple of different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Frozen or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average pump lasts 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is upright and not leaning to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, dump a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump starts and pulls out the water efficiently.
  5. During drought-like forecasts, take out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole isn’t plugged.
