What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a pump which sits at the lowest point in your home, within a pit that is excavated for the purpose of housing the sump pump. There are various ways in which a sump pump may be installed. It can be submerged beneath the water or installed on a pedestal, which keeps the pump itself out of the water while an inlet pipe draws water out in the event of flooding. In either case, the sole purpose of a sump pump is to prevent water from accumulating in your basement to the point where it can overflow from the sump pit and cause damage to your property. This is a great insurance investment against water damage to your lower levels.

Why Consider a Batter Backup Sump Pump

Because your home is most likely to experience flooding during periods of heavy rain, it is very possible that the power in your home may go out when you need your sump pump most. This is a problem, as sump pumps require electricity in order to operate. Fortunately, a battery backup sump pump is able to operate on battery power until the electricity in your home is restored, helping to further ensure that your home is kept dry even in the case of a power outage.
