Are You Protected With A Water-Powered Backup Sump Pump?
Countless homeowners have experienced the horror of coming home to a flooded basement full of damaged valuables and ruined family mementos and heirlooms – are you protected against this heartache and headache? When it’s raining cats and dogs, an efficient, well-functioning sump pump can be the difference between a night of sleep and a night of cleanup and calls with the insurance company. Unfortunately, even if your sump pump is doing its job, a power outage, which isn’t uncommon during a storm, can render it ineffective, as traditional sump pumps rely on electricity to work. What can be done to protect your basement from a flood during a power outage?
Backup Sump Pumps
Commonly, battery-powered backup sump pumps are installed and switched on during a power outage. Although these can work quite well in brief power outages, the battery can’t be expected to outlast longer power outages. That’s why those of us here at Stadler Plumbing & Heating install and replace water-powered backup sump pumps just above traditional sump pumps!
Water-powered backup sump pumps are designed to switch on automatically when power is lost or your traditional electric sump pump fails for some reason or another. Although these pumps work to pump water away from the home, just like battery-powered backups, a water-powered backup sump pump relies on the city’s water supply for power, as opposed to a battery. Although water costs can add up quickly when these sump pumps are in use, the big benefit is that these pumps protect you from basement flooding, no matter how long the power outage. Another perk of these backup sump pumps is that they require virtually no maintenance and rarely fail.
