How do I know if My Sump Pump Line is Freezing?

  • Your sump pump is always running – If your device is constantly running, then your discharge lines may have debris or ice. Frequent running signifies your sump pump is working harder to clear water past debris and ice.
  • Frequent on and off cycles – A regularly cycling sump pump works harder and will wear out faster.
  • Wet areas – Despite your sump pump running, there may be water everywhere. Standing water points to an overworked, failing sump pump with clogged lines.
  • Odors and humidity – Musty smells mean standing water and blockage in your discharge line. Be aware of foul odors or humidity.

How do I keep my sump pump line from freezing?

  • Keep water running – Constant water going in and out of the discharge line can prevent freezing and dislodge debris
  • Prevent water from meeting cold air – Provide more insulation between your discharge lines and cold air. Bury the liner deeper underground or add hay and tarp as insulation.
  • Reduce the workload – Less work means your sump pump won’t fail quickly.

There are many DIY ways to keep your sump pump from freezing. If these methods don’t work, you’ll want to consider professional installation.
