Why Use a Battery Backup Pump?
Eventually all primary sump pumps fail, for different reasons:
- Power Outage - Battery backup sump pumps use battery power to activate the battery backup system during a power outage
- Primary Pump Failure - Battery backup sump pumps will automatically begin pumping in the event of primary pump failure
- Stuck Float Switch - In the case of a stuck float switch, the rising water will automatically activate the battery backup system
- Primary Sump Pump Cannot Keep Up With the Inflow of Water - Sometimes the primary sump pump can't keep up with the incoming water volume, the battery backup will activate to assist the primary pump
By using a Basement Watchdog Battery Backup System, which monitors and protects against these occurrences, your basement will remain dry.
