A battery backup sump pump is a great addition, to any home, for homeowners who want to protect themselves and keep their basement or crawl space dry. Here are the main three reasons to have a battery backup system:
- For when the power goes out. Or the fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips, or the power cord gets pulled out — your primary pump won’t run and you have the potential for flood damage.
- For when the primary pump fails. Primary pumps, just like any other equipment have the potential to fail. Pump failure due to clogging, debris build up and mechanical failure can also lead to excess water damage. Also, if the float switch on your primary pump gets stuck or does not activate, you will flood.
- For when the volume of water is too much for the primary pump to handle. In heavy rains, the ground becomes saturated with more water than what it can handle. Looking for a place to go, water will try to enter into your basement in any way that it can. During these times, the primary pump may not be able to eject all of the water quickly enough, as water enters around your foundation and/or perimeter tile. When the water rises past the float on your primary pump, the battery backup sump pump will activate to discharge the excess water.
