Sump Pump Battery Backup- Do I Need it?
If you are planning to waterproof your basement or replace an existing sump pump, you may be considering a sump pump battery backup system. There is of course a lot of benefit to having a backup system. Sump pumps do not last forever. Just like everything, with wear and tear over time, they will need to be replaced. But you may not know that it needs to be replaced until you have a flood. When and if your sump pump fails, isn’t it worth it to have a backup?
Is It Worth the Investment?
During what event may you need a backup?
- The float switch on your primary sump pump fails, gets stuck, or doesn’t activate.
- A fuse or circuit breaker is tripped.
- The cord on your primary sump pump accidentally gets pulled out.
- Your primary sump pump experiences mechanical failure.
- Your electricity goes out.
Electricity failure can happen because of a storm. But when it is storming, that is NOT the time that you want your sump pump to stop functioning. That is when you need it the most!
