If you own a home with a basement, you probably know that keeping that part of your home moisture-free and dry can sometimes be a challenge. Whether due to rainfall or misdirected gutters, water can easily begin to seep into your home’s foundation and start collecting in your basement.

Your home’s primary pump is designed to redirect that excess water away from your house. But what happens if this pump fails? Having a backup sump pump installed ensures you don’t have to worry. Browse our collection of battery-powered backup systems to keep your home protected from power outages, inclement weather and more.

What Is a Backup Sump Pump?

Just like its name suggests, a backup sump pump is designed to take over any time the primary pump fails. This backup is especially beneficial in areas that tend to have heavy rainfall and snow. It’s usually installed above the primary pump and helps prevent flooding whenever the primary pump fails to redirect the rising water levels.

Reasons to Have a Backup Sump Pump

Your home’s first defense against extensive water damage is the primary pump. If it fails, there is nothing to keep water from entering and flooding your home. Your primary pump might fail for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Power outage.
  • Stuck float switch or equipment failure.
  • Pump overload.
  • Human error.

Regardless of the reason, water damage is costly and can even affect your family’s health. Having a backup sump pump gives you peace of mind. Even if your primary pump fails, it will keep on pumping water away while protecting your home and valuables.
