A Battery Back Up Can Help Your Sump Pump Run – Even When The Power Is Out
Schafer Mechanical also installs sump pump battery backups in the Cape May area. In the Cape May area, heavy thunderstorms are not only common but expected. And heavy thunderstorms bring high winds and lightning. As a result, power will go out during many thunderstorms. Because your sump pump runs on electricity, a power outage could render your sump pump useless at the very time you need it the most.
That’s why you need a Battery Backup Sump Pump. Not only does it work when your main sump pump doesn’t, it also acts as a secondary pump in case your primary pump gets overwhelmed. The battery backup also has an alarm that alerts you should there be any problems with the battery, connections, or a clogged pump. The backup sump pump protects against:
- Power outage
- Primary sump pump failure
- Excessive water inflow
