Providing our Customers with Dependable Waterproofing Services

Battery backup sump pumps are used to protect against flooding when your power goes out. During the worst of the 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 who have experienced basement flooding, these are not a luxury but an absolute necessity.Battery Back Up Sump Pumps

Battery Backup Sump Pumps from Rapid Foundation Repair

A battery backup sump pump system with a controller monitors your whole waterproofing system. When electrical power service is interrupted, the controller switches your sump system from AC to DC power. The controllers then recharge the battery once AC power is restored.

Audible alarms will inform you of this occurrence, but for most systems, no action is needed on your part. Some of these systems can even call your cell phone and tell you of an electrical interruption so that you are warned about losing power to your freezer or any other appliance or device.

As with AC sump pumps, DC battery backups vary in performance and features. The keys to picking the best system are the gallons per hour that they can clear and the efficiency. If the system is inefficient, it will drain the battery quickly and put your basement at risk. Also, your basement will be at risk if your backup cannot keep up with the water entering your sump basin.
