Common Battery Backup Designs
(Click for more information about each solution.)
Like any mechanical system in your home, it's a great idea to install a backup option. If you have a primary sump pump and a battery backup sump pump, your basement is already well on its way to being protected.
However, if your primary sump pump fails due to mechanical failure, your basement waterproofing is only good as long as your battery backup can last. And if your sump pump is being overwhelmed due to an unusually high volume of water, it's best to have a secondary sump pump that can kick in and help keep the water down.
Is your sump pump keeping your basement dry?

If you are home and awake to turn on your system, a generator-powered backup sump pump is a sound choice. Automatic systems cost between $7,000 and $10,000 to install.
Some sump systems include a battery that converts DC battery power into AC power to charge your primary pump. This energy conversion is quite inefficient, and AC-powered pumps face a low battery life.
Water-powered sump pumps can operate without power as they use your water supply to run your sump pump system. Unfortunately, they pump slowly and are extremely wasteful.
Battery Backup Sump Pumps use a battery and a separate battery-powered sump pump to operate.
When a high-quality battery backup is installed, you can pump out thousands of gallons of water on a single charge. And because you have a second pump installed, you're covered during sump pump failures and during overwhelming rains as well as during power outages.
