Battery Back-Up Sump Pumps Add Peace of Mind
Advocate Master Plumbing also installs sump pump battery backups in the Lee’s Summit area.
When do sump pumps stop working? When the electricity goes off during a big storm.
When do you need them the most? When we have large rainfalls.
When do you typically lose power? During heavy thunderstorms.
That’s why a battery back-up sump pump is so important. A battery back-up pump will switch automatically to battery when power fails or your main pump fails. Not only do battery back-up sump pumps take over when your sump pump loses power, they can also assist when your main sump pump is overwhelmed. A backup pump can handle 1000 to 2200 gallons per hour. It also has a maintenance alarm that will sound loudly if service is needed. With a battery back-up sump pump, you can be sure that your home and belongings are protected at all times.
Water Powered Back Up Sump Pump Systems
Another wonderful option for your home is the Siphon Jet water powered back up sump pump system. It works solely on water pressure. There’s no electricity needed. It’s more affordable. It’s been tested and used for 10 years in homes across America. It needs no maintenance of any kind. It uses 1 gallon of water to pump 2 gallons of ground water from your foundation. And it only comes on when your primary sump pump fails.
A Simple Test to Ensure Your Sump Pumps are Working
It’s never a good idea to assume your sump pump is working. At Advocate Master Plumbing, we encourage homeowners to check their sump pumps regularly. Mark the first or last day of the month on your calendar to remind yourself to perform this simple, five-minute task.
Sump Pump Test
- Fill a five-gallon bucket with water
- Remove the lid and pour it in the sump pit
- The motor should kick on and drain the water
If the sump pump does not respond or the water is not pumped out of the sump pit, your sump pump may require repairs. It is much, much better to discover this when you don’t need your sump pump than in the middle of a storm when your basement is filling with water. If you suspect you have sump pump problems or need a sump pump or battery back-up sump pump installed, call Advocate Master Plumbing today at 816-888-0599.
