Impeller runs, no water comes out. Removed output hose, air is blowing out when removed from sump.


Remove bottom cover, check for clogged intake holes, and make sure the impeller is solidly attached to the shaft. Can you see the water in the sump? Is the sump full of sand at the bottom?

Sump pump does not go on all the time have to shake pipe to get it going so water doesn't overflow


There should be a float switch in the pit, sounds like its getting stuck and when you shake it it activates. Check the switch, the rod, etc.

Sump pump will not pump water, won' turn on, floater up


There are a few things that could cause this problem to come up. Pretty much all of them do require taking the sump pump apart a bit though. I would suggest having a professional come to help you if you don't have much experience with this kind of work. Hopefully you can get this resolved fairly quickly.

Pump won't shut-ff


Hi Ron...
Check your float switch....sometimes they can get stuck to cause this problem of not shutting down after draining the orginal water.
Take the float switch and move it up and down...this may help to clear the stuck switch inside of the float

I purchased a Simer 3986 SS Pump. Need proper mounting location for check valve. I have a manufactured weep hole in the threaded area of the check valve, Pump runs, water level trip vertical float switch...


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


The orientation for a sump pump/check valve are the pump is in the bottom of the pit, the discharge pipe leads up into a check valve, usually very close to if not threaded into the pump discharge, and then the pipe continues up and out to wherever your water discharges to. The weep hole needs to be below the check valve.

The hole is there to prevent an air lock in the pump which would prevent it from moving water.

If the water trapped in the vertical run of the discharge pipe is returning to the pit once the pump shuts off the problem is the check valve is not holding or the hole is on the wrong side of the flapper assembly. Did the check valve come with the unit? If not, you will need to fix it if you can or replace it.


If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. You may also contact me thru our website at www.arrowpools.net. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

How to troubleshoot toilet sump pump?


Unplug the sump pump. Bail out the sump pump to expose the pump's machinery.

Inspect the rod attached to the motor on the top of the sump pump. Move it up and down manually to see if it moves smoothly. Corrosion will keep the rod from moving smoothly. Clean the float road with steel wool.

Inspect the float ball. If it contains water, you need to replace it. Unscrew the float ball from the end of the float rod and screw on a replacement float ball.

Inspect your sump pump's check valve. It has an arrow on it. The arrow should be pointing away from the pump. If it's pointing towards the pump, remove and reinstall the check valve.

Locate the small weep hole between the check valve and the pump. Clean it out with a pipe cleaner.

Inspect the impeller, which is the fan-like piece that sits near the bottom of the pump's tank. If it is clogged by debris, then it will not turn properly. Unbolt the impeller and clean away any debris you find. Reinstall the impeller with new gaskets and sealant. Locate and replace the mesh filter in the sump pump, since only a damaged or missing filter would allow debris to get near the impeller.
Below is troubleshooting work, web link, through to assist you in that.

Water problem


That is most likely your weep hole and it means your water pump seal is leaking. You should rebuild the pump at a time that is convenient to you rather than have the pump quit on you while you are riding some day. I have had a tiny leak for years, but sometimes they go fast.
