The trick is to keep them running as long as possible with proper maintenance and replace them before failure to avoid water damage. Regular maintenance should include visually inspecting the pump to find any obvious concerns, clean the sump pump and basin, check for obstructions, check the valve and discharge line, check the float, check all switches and connections and then test to ensure proper sump pump operation.
