Aspects of Sump Pumps

The main sump pump doesn’t have to be the only line of defense when water enters your home. Battery backup pumps and secondary sump pumps can also be utilized to protect the foundation of your property. 

Battery Backup Pumps

This type of sump pump has a rechargeable battery pack that runs in the event of a blackout. It is fully functional without the use of electricity. Some of the newer model sump pumps are pre-packaged with built-in battery backup systems for more efficiency. 

Secondary Sump Pumps

These sump pumps are also battery powered and are a common option. Secondary sump pumps are often as powerful as the main sump pumps but have noticeable advantages over battery pack pumps. Secondary pumps can operate without the use of power and can become a replacement in the case the primary pump breaks down or can become a powerful defense against extreme flooding.

“We experienced water in our basement for the first time due to our sump pump failing. We went to Home Advisor and found AUS. They responded quickly late in the evening and a few hours later we had a new sump pump installed and water quickly began recede from our basement. Our tech was amazing and very professional. He left our home just before midnight and had more homes to do. We were very pleased with the quality and timeliness of the repair and would definitely recommend AUS again.”
