    Utility Pump Maintenance

    sump pump

    If you have a utility pump, there are easy ways you can help extend the life of your pump's motor. Pump maintenance is an important part of keeping your pump running efficiently.

    To perform pump maintenance, you will need the following items:

    • White vinegar
    • Stiff bristle brush
    • Clean water

    Prepare the Cleaning Solution

    Mix two cups of white vinegar with five gallons of clean water in a bucket.

    Clean Surfaces and Internal Pump Components

    How you clean a utility pump depends on the type of utility pump. Follow these steps to clean a sumbersible utility pump:

    Cleaning a Submersible Utility Pump

    Identify all openings on the pump where water flows in or out, and remove any debris you can find. Remove debris from the inlet screen.

    Dunk the pump in the bucket of clean water to flush out any remaining debris you cannot clean by hand. Use the bristle brush to scrub off any surface deposits.

    Put the pump back into the bucket and turn it on until all water has been pumped out.

    Allow the pump to air-dry and store in a cool, dry location.

    Cleaning a Non-Submersible Utility Pump

    Identify all openings on the pump where water flows in or out, and remove any debris you can find. Remove debris from the inlet screen.

    Use the bristle brush to scrub off any surface deposits.

    Connect the inlet and discharge hoses to the pump and put the inlet hose into the bucket. Turn on the pump until all water has been pumped out.

    Allow the pump to air-dry and store in a cool, dry location.
