Battery Backup Sump Pumps
When it comes to protecting your home from water, two is always better than one. Battery backup sump pumps provide protection against flooding when your power goes out. During some severe spring storms, power is often lost, shutting down your old sump pump system. In these cases, a battery backup sump pump will automatically turn on and provide flood protection for your basement until power is restored. For those of us that have experienced basement flooding, a battery backup is not a luxury but a necessity.
Earth Contact Products (ECP) battery backup sump pump systems monitor your whole waterproofing system with a controller and then switch your sump system from AC power to DC power when there is an interruption in electrical power service. This system will then recharge the battery once AC power is restored. Audible alarms will inform you of this instance but no action is needed on your part for most systems. Some systems can even call your phone and inform you of an interruption so that you are warned about your freezer or other appliances.
Benefits of Battery Backup Sump Pumps
As with AC sump pumps, DC battery backup units vary in performance and features. Gallons per hour and efficiency are the keys to picking the best system. If the system is not efficient, it will drain the battery quickly and put your basement at risk. Also, if your backup cannot keep up with the amount of water entering your sump basin, your basement could be flooded. Insist on ECP sump pump systems to protect your home from flooding. We can help you determine what type of system will be best for your home. Contact us today to learn more about battery backup sump pumps.
