Maybe your current Sump Pump is working perfectly fine and you think that there’s no need for a battery operated Backup Sump Pump. However, at any given point in time, your main sump pump can fail, leaving you with a flooded basement and no battery backup to hand. Ensure that you don’t end up in this situation and consider investing in a battery backup sump pump.
Why Use a Battery Operated Backup Sump Pump?
The reason you may need a battery operated backup sump pump is because your main sump pump system can fail. There are a number of reasons it may fail, including:
Power outages – battery backup sump pumps use battery power to activate the battery backup system which means that they are very handy to have in a power outage.
Failure of primary pump – a battery backup sump pump will automatically begin working in the event of failure to the primary pump. This is why it’s a good idea to have one running in addition to your primary pump.
Stuck switch – it’s actually very common for the float switch to become stuck on primary sump pumps. In the case of a stuck float switch, the rising flooded water will automatically activate the battery backup system, preventing further flooding in your basement.
Primary sump pump can’t keep up – it’s unfortunate but not uncommon for the primary sump pump to struggle to keep up with the inflow of flooded water. Therefore, it’s worth activating the battery backup system in addition to your primary pump.
