Enjoy Protection & Peace of Mind
After 25 years as the area’s water damage restoration expert, we’ve helped many homeowners whose sump pumps have failed, resulting in a flooded basement and ruined belongings. That’s why at Superior Restoration and Remodeling, we always recommend installing a battery backup system to further enhance your basement waterproofing system. A battery backup will prevent flooding if your sump pump fails, saving you the hassle and heartache of a wet basement.
Why Sump Pumps Fail
Sump pumps can fail for a variety of reasons, most of them outside your control.
- Blown fuse
- Clogged intake pipe
- Frozen intake pipe
- Power outages due to a strong storm
- Wrong-sized model
- Improper installation
- Product defect
- Old age
If your sump pump is 10 years or older, it may be time to consider a replacement. No matter how old your sump pump is, it’s always wise to consider a battery backup.
How Battery Backups Work
Typically, a battery backup can provide full power for four to six hours. If your home already has a backup generator, power can last indefinitely. We recommend and install whole-home generators for complete protection.
Battery backups are simple to install and don’t require much maintenance — only the battery water levels and terminals must be checked regularly. The latest models can actually warn homeowners via text or email when danger is present or maintenance is required.
There are a variety of battery backups available to cater to the size of your space and your home’s specific needs. Whether or not your basement is finished will determine what kind of unit is right for you.
