These pumps are ideal for removing water quickly and efficiently and diverting the water to storage systems or drains. Having a sump pump installed into your home can ensure that you avoid flooding damage from major storms, disasters with plumbing, or other accidents.

What to Do When Your Sump Pump Overflows
Taking the following steps can help you diagnose why the sump pump is not operating effectively:
- Check the Power Source
- Unplug the Pump Momentarily
- Check the Float Switch
- Inspect the Overflow Valve
- Unblock the Weep Hole
- Check the Impeller and Basin for Clogs
- Inspect the Discharge Pipe
- Evaluate the Size of Your Unit
Check the Power Source
Ensure that no fuse has blow or circuit has tripped. Look for problems with the wiring or outlet.
Unplug the Pump Momentarily
Wait a few minutes after unplugging your unit. Plug it back in and see if the reset fixes the problem. You may want to have your unit inspected even if this succeeds.
Check the Float Switch
The float should be able to move around. If it is under the surface, it may be split open and will need to be replaced. If it is lodged in place, move it until it floats freely.
Inspect the Overflow Valve
This valve keeps water out once it has been pumped out. Check for and remove any blockage.
Unblock the Weep Hole
If you have a small relief hole between the overflow valve and the discharge line, it may be blocked with dirt or debris.
Check the Impeller and Basin for Clogs
Open up the bottom of the pump and make sure the impeller is rotating freely. Remove any debris if not. Check the basin for any foreign objects that could be impeding the unit.
Inspect the Discharge Pipe
Like any pipe, these can get clogged up over time. Check for clogs or damage and clean out the pipe if possible.
Evaluate the Size of Your Unit
An incorrectly sized unit will not be able to keep up with the amount of water it is forced to pump out. If you live in a larger home or an area prone to flooding, a 1/3 HP pump may need to be upgraded to a 1/2 HP or 3/4 HP pump.
