The Importance Of Having A Backup Battery

Protect Against Power Loss & Primary Sump Pump Failure

GrateSump PlusTM Battery Backup Sump Pump System. If your power goes out, you have a safe operating time until your power is turned back on. A battery backup system should be installed with every primary sump pump system.

Reasons for a Backup Sump Pump System:

  • When the power goes out
  • When the primary pump fails (mechanical problems)
  • When the primary pump gets overwhelmed
  • When the primary pump discharge pipe gets clogged or frozen
  • When circuit breaker trips or the power cord gets unplugged

It is recommended that homeowners should have a Secondary Backup Sump System. When your primary sump pump stops working, you can be rest assured that your backup pumping system will continue to pump.

Why do homeowners need a Backup Sump Pump System?

A homeowner can have peace of mind knowing that their valuable storage and property are protected against water damage. Time and money are also a factor: It is not spent in the cleanup of water damaged materials and property.

A storm can interrupt power and cause your primary sump pump to stop working when you need it the most. Is it worth it? Insurance companies report that a flooded basement can cost over $30,000 to $50,000 in restoration.

Install A Battery Backup Sump Pump

A battery backup sump pump will automatically pump water out and away from the house when there is power loss or if the primary sump pump fails. A battery backup sump pump will also pump water out if the primary pump becomes overwhelmed.
