Why having a Backup Sump Pump is so Important!

Backup Sump Pump! Why are so Important?

 

Every home with a sump pump should have a reliable backup sump pump system for peace of mind. In the event of a power disruption or primary pump / level control failure, it will assume the role as the primary pump, allowing time for the power to be restored or the primary pump to be repaired or replaced.

Water-driven sump pumps require no battery and need no electrical power. Instead, they use a home’s water pressure from incoming city water to create suction which pumps water out of the sump pit. Water back-up sump pumps can run indefinitely, as long as there is city water pressure coming to your home.  The homeowner no longer has to worry about power outage lasting longer than their battery powered pump’s battery life.  The water powered back-up sump pump system does not use any water until the primary system malfunctions or in the case of a power failure.  Waters Basement Services, Inc. choice would be to use a Liberty Sump Jet Water Powered Back-up Pump.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Features:

Adjustable Stainless Hose Clamp for Easy Mounting

Removes 2 Gallons of Water for Each 1 Gallon Used. (based on 5’ lift)

Fully Assembled, Compact Design

Built-in Screen with Removable Foot Valve

Waters Basement Services, Inc. believes the best possible combination for protecting your home is a regular electric powered sump pump and a water-powered sump pump working together to keep your basement dry, and your valuables and furnishings free from damage.

Battery Backup Sump Pump System

Battery back-up sump pumps are an option for rural areas; because there is no municipal water supply available (city water) which is necessary for a water backup sump pump. A battery back-up sump pump is a separate sump pump system that is installed adjacent to your primary electric pump in the sump basin.  .  In the event of a power disruption or primary pump / level control failure, it will assume the role as the primary pump allowing time for the power to be restored or the primary pump to be repaired or replaced.  Waters Basement Services, Inc. choice would be to use a PitBoss Battery Backup System or the PitBoss Battery Backup Combo System.

 

 

 

Features:

PitBoss backup pump system (3 year warranty on backup pump).

Automatic weekly self-test. LCD Screen Displays Important Messages.

24 Hour Alarm Silence.

Battery status notifications.

System Monitors and maintains battery automatically.

75 AMP / HR Battery AGM sealed lead acid battery.

Single battery charge 2000 cycles 13000 gallons.

Battery performance if backup pump cycles: (Every 5 Min – 166 hours) (Every 2 Min – 66 hours) (Every 1 Min – 5.5 hours)

Waters Basement Services, Inc. believes that, while a battery backup sump pump is an option for a rural area, the homeowner might want to consider having a Generac installed (or a portable generator on hand) to maintain constant electric – as a battery backup can only be sustained for a limited number of hours.

Importance of using a Dehumidifier

DID YOU KNOW HOW IMPROTANT IT IS TO USE A DEHUMIDIFIER AND WHERE THAT DEHUMIDIFER SHOULD BE PLACED?

 

Use a dehumidifier in your basement to keep relative humidity below 60% (Ideally between 30 and 50 percent relative humidity). Dehumidifiers should be used all year. With the energy saver dehumidifier it will only run when needed. Dehumidifiers can use a garden hose to run it over to your sump basin so there is no need to empty the water in the dehumidifier bucket.

Never put your dehumidifier right next to your sump basin, as the dehumidifier will keep trying to remove the water from your sump basin. Always have a lid on your sump basin to help keep the moisture in the sump.

If you have rooms in your basement, you may need to run a fan to help circulate the air throughout your basement.

It is also very important you should not open the windows and doors when running a dehumidifier in your basement. When the outside air is warmer than your basement air it can cause a humid atmosphere.
