The sump pump is the core of any basement or crawl space waterproofing system, so it's vital to choose a sump pump that will last you for quite some time. That's why at EcoSpect, we offer battery backup systems for your sump pumps, to make sure that your basement is flood-free at all times.
When a home has a basement or a crawl space, they are sometimes protected from any damage that standing ground water can inflict by having a network of drainage tubes around the foundation. This network of tubes leads into a shallow sump pit, and this is where a sump pump is hard at work, channeling water away from your home through a PVC pipe.
The good thing about sump pumps is that they work automatically each time the sump is full of water, but the downside is that they're easily forgotten about because of such convenience. Don't forget to check up on your sump pump and maintain it every so often, because a damaged or broken sump pump means that there is a chance of your sump overflowing -- damaging your basement twice as quickly.
Sump pumps operate using your home's electricity, but there is always a chance that the same storm that is able to flood your home with water is the same storm that knocks out your power source. When that happens, then it's time for the battery backup system to do its work. There is a battery that's continuously kept charged by the backup system, and its job is to provide you with continuous support until your power is restored.
There are even some backup pumps that can monitor your battery's current condition, and can alert you when it needs ot be replaced right away.
Now, there are situations wherein homeowners are left unaware that their battery backup sump pump system has both a battery and a secondary sump pump.
