Battery Powered Backup Sump Pumps in Rochester
Pride Plumbing of Rochester
Given the ever-changing weather typical to our region, it makes sense to add a backup sump pump system to ensure your basement doesn’t flood in the event of power outages. Think it won’t happen in your neighborhood? Think again. Spring of 2017 saw Pride Plumbing of Rochester flooded with calls from Brighton, Webster, Penfield, Fairport, and many other Monroe and Ontario county neighborhoods that were under water and out of power, and not just for a few hours. In some cases, homes were off the power grid for days! Many of those calls could have been avoided by a high-quality, well-installed backup sump pump like the American made Liberty Model 441 system.
Things to Consider
Choosing a battery-operated backup system is a great way to protect your home in the event of failure to your main sump pump. It operates on a strong, long-life battery that kicks on when your power goes out and ensures that water continues to get pumped out of your basement, avoiding costly flood damage.
Battery powered backup systems are popular because they are versatile. Most any home in Monroe and Ontario county can use them. They pump out impressive volumes of water and are available in varying horsepower to meet your individual needs. There are also battery-type options available to provide you with adequate run time in the event of power loss.
At Pride Plumbing of Rochester, we recommend the following models and series of battery-powered back-up sump pumps:
This model is an emergency sump pump system that’s powered by a 12-volt battery. Should your power fail, this model will automatically turn on and begin to work.
The model includes:
- A high output submersible pump
- An automatic, mercury-free switch
- A control panel
- A battery box (note that the battery is not included)
- A 12-volt charger
- A tee, check valve, and bushings for 1.25 or 1.5-inch connections
One of the other great features of this model is the fact that it comes with an audible in-use alarm system and light. It also self-resets after 24 hours of silence.
