A battery backup system consists of a primary pump that does all of the work of removing water from your sump pit. It also has a completely separate pump that kicks in when something goes wrong with either the primary pump or the power source for the primary pump. The second pump is battery powered so that in the event of a power failure or pump failure your basement will still have a working sump pump. Battery backup sump pumps provide peace of mind that your basement and your belongings will be safe. Most sump pumps and battery powered back up sump pumps do have a limited lifetime expectancy so it is recommended that you replace both your primary and your battery backup before they fail. Deep cycle batteries need to be replaced every 3 years. Call for a price on a 120 amp-hr maintenance free battery.
