What Is a Battery Backup Sump Pump?
A battery backup sump pump is a second sump pump installed next to your primary one. It runs exactly like your primary pump, with the exception of its power source. It runs on battery power, so it will start to pump water from your home if your primary pump fails. It’s also set up to only run if the primary pump isn’t running. In other words, it’s a complete secondary pump, providing full effectiveness if your primary pump doesn’t work for any reason.
When Might a Battery Backup Sump Pump Be Necessary?
While you might think that you’re safe because you have a fairly new sump pump, you would be surprised to learn how many homes in the area end up with flooded basements when they already have a sump pump. Your battery backup sump pump will be a lifesaver when:
- The power goes out for any reason, causing your primary pump to stop working.
- Your primary pump has a mechanical problem and can’t run.
- The float switch on the primary pump gets stuck and it doesn’t activate as it should.
These problems can occur unexpectedly, and you may not even realize you have a problem until you have a flood in your basement. That’s why the John Nugent & Sons team recommends everybody has a battery backup sump pump installed in their home, no matter how old or effective their primary sump pump is.
