Battery Back-Up Sump Pump
Our battery back-up sump pump systems are great additions to any primary sump. They will be activated if the power goes out at your home. This means that the next time a big storm hits and the power goes out, you won't have to worry about having a flooded basement. There's no work needed from you because the system is automatic. The back-up sump will be able to detect if the power is out in your home, and will switch on.
Sump Pumps with Alarms
When you have a sump pump keeping your basement dry, it should make use of a WaterWatch® sump pump alarm, which will sound off to inform you that the pump has stopped working before the floor gets soaked and ruined. Using this method, if the pump gets unplugged or the circuit breaker trips, you have notification and can easily repair the problem. WaterWatch® alarm systems are regular features on all Basement Doctor TripleSafe™ sump pump systems.
Basement Finishing and Back Up Sump Pumps
Additionally, before investing a lot of money on basement finishing, you need to have an UltraSump® battery operated back-up sump pumps. This is a second pump and switch in the same sump hole, with a unique battery and charging system. The UltraSump® will immediately pump the water out in the event that the power is out, the main pump has a mechanical malfunction, or when the primary pump does not function for whatever reason. This is very important, because without it your finished basement is just one pump or power failure away from a water surge. This system makes sure that your Ohio, Indiana or Kentucky basement is dry continuously.
