Sump Pump Battery Backups
Every home needs a sump pump to protect it from the catastrophic impact of flooding. However, when the power is out, a standard sump pump can’t do its job. That’s why a sump pump battery backup is the best way to protect against basement flooding from the sump pump pit.
Our highly skilled and specialized team at London Pump Supply Ltd. always recommend a battery backup into sump pump pits, for the following reasons:
- If the power goes out, the pump will kick on and remove water.
- It acts as an independent, secondary, separate pump so if your main pump fails, the battery backup will kick on and remove water.
- It has a high water audible alarm on it, so when the water gets above your main pump, the battery backup knows something has gone wrong and alerts the home owner so they can call us immediately to resolve the issue before any problems arise.
At London Pump Supply Ltd., we recommend one of two Myers MBSP battery backup systems; the Myers® MBSP-2 and the Myers MBSP-3. These systems are designed to serve as a back-up to primary residential sump pumps in the event of pump or power failure. If primary pump failure occurs, a built-in alarm activates the warning buzzer and a separate float switch will automatically start the back-up system, thereby protecting against damage.
