Sump Pump and Backup Systems
Take Control Systems
Commonly used by homeowners for a variety of purposes, a sump pump essentially moves excess water from a problem area, such as the basement of a home, into a place where the water can safely go, such as a storm drain. Without a sump pump to remove excess water, catastrophic flooding and damage can occur, leading to expensive major repairs and higher insurance premiums.
Perfect for basements that are susceptible to flooding
The basement is the area where a sump pump is most commonly installed. If your basement floods regularly during rain events, or your basement walls tend to retain excess moisture and require a drainage system, your basement should have a sump pump to move that water elsewhere.
Why have a backup?
Considering the potentially catastrophic damage that a sump pump keeps at bay, what would happen if it stopped working? Don’t wait to find out! Primary sump pumps fail most often, not because of device malfunction, but due to a loss in power, such as in a storm or lightning strike, or even by someone unplugging the sump pump and forgetting to plug it back in.
Just imagine the damage that can be done during a period of heavy rain if your sump pump isn’t functioning — it’s not a pretty picture. By having a battery backup system already installed, you can be sure that the water is being consistently moved out of your basement and into a place that is safer and more apt to absorb excess liquid.
