A sump pump power failure can occur for several reasons. When your sump pump doesn’t have power, it can’t keep your basement or crawlspace dry.
What should I know about this?
The most common reason for sump-pump power failure is an outage in your home or building’s electrical system. The devices that cause outages can vary depending on where you live and the time of year; these include severe weather like snowstorms or thunderstorms, overloaded circuits due to overuse of electric appliances, downed power lines after storms, or even just general wear-and-tear on wires and equipment that lead to decreased energy efficiency. Whatever the reason for your pump’s failure, it is essential to act quickly.
If your pump isn’t working due to a power outage, try resetting the circuit breaker or replacing any blown fuses. You can also call your local electric utility provider and ask them to troubleshoot the issue directly. If none of these solutions fix the problem, you may need to have a professional electrician look at the wiring system in your home or building.
