11 REASONS FOR SUMP PUMP FAILURE
A sump pump is much like a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher, or your home’s security system. There is rarely a time when you actually need to use it, but it can be an essential tool if a dire situation occurs.
Sump pumps help mitigate and prevent such situations by quickly draining flood water from the basement of a home through an external discharge pipe.
At Indiana Water Well Drilling Services, we hope to help you avoid these potential problems before disaster strikes. Read on for tips on identifying the 11 most common reasons that result in sump pump failure.
A Stuck Switch
Frozen or Clogged Discharge Pipe
Lack of Maintenance
Did Not Install a Check Valve on the Discharge Line

“Joe and Cory had excellent customer service, very friendly! I enjoyed the conversations with them while they fixed our well and further educating myself on well operations. They replaced the wiring and cap on my 200ft deep well at a reasonable price. The job was completed same day. I HIGHLY recommend Joe and Cory to fix your water well!”
“They arrived on time as promised and stay until the job was done and my well was working. I never felt as if they were trying to sell me a new pump. They began troubleshooting from the power source and followed it all thy way out. I ultimately needed a new pump but we didn t go there until all else was ruled out or fixed. Nice change. And price was good. The old pump was 44 years old BTW. “
