A flooded basement can be a big headache for homeowners. Drying carpet or replacing carpet, damaged furniture, and even soggy drywall can really take a toll on your stress levels and your pocketbook. Adding a battery backup sump pump can protect your basement and give you peace of mind.
Six Reasons Sump Pumps Fail
- Storm power outages
- Mechanical problems
- Pipes clogged with debris
- Float switch on the main pump gets stuck or fails
- Clogged or frozen discharge pipe on the main pump
- Full sewer line
Battery Backup Benefits
Installing a battery backup sump pump may be a good solution for your home because it will automatically keep working up to 8 hours–even when the power goes out or you are away from home. Also, buying a high-quality sump pump eliminates some of the common reasons sump pumps fail. Quality models are made with better materials. They also have well-designed float switches that are less likely to get stuck. The Family Handyman gives good descriptions of sump pump backup systems and what to look for when buying a new pump.
