Sump Pump Battery Backup
When we talk about the safety - battery backup comes to our mind! Sump pump is just a motor. How you can prevent the flood from sump pit in your basement? If in any case yours existing sump pump failed to operate due to power outage or just a system failure,
There are other alternatives towards the problem. There are back up pumps which are a battery powered sump pumps (you will keep system on around 200min) and water powered sump pumps (will keep system on with no limitation on time).
Backup systems work only at the moment when primary pump is out of service (broken, for example).
We at Anta Plumbing strongly recommend to do maintenance to the system every year to clear all debris out of pit, and check the functionality of all parts in a system like check valve (preventive mechanism to keep discharged dirty water not coming back to the pit.
Install battery back up and you will be safe. Just imagine, no electricity or your electric plug stopped working.... Alarm will start make noices to put your attention, and you will never have flood from sump pit (just ground water in that pit from your weeping tile)
- install at least alarm system to sewer pit to prevent sewer backups in your basement in case of emergency.
