Sump Pump Check Valve Failure

Sump Pump Check Valve Failure Repair by Sump Pump Geeks

Why Is a Check Valve Important?

A check valve in the sump pump's discharge line avoids the pumped water from running back into the pit again. Without it, a sump pump would be forced to move the same water twice which can cause the pump to burn out prematurely.

How to Know If You Have Check Valve Failure

  • It Is Taking Longer Than Usual to Discharge the Water
  • Check for Leaks or Moisture on Seals, Connection & Valve
  • Fill the Pit With 1/4 to 1/2 of Water and See If it Drains
  • Look Out for Water Running Back Down During Rain
