This homeowner saw massive amounts of water in the crawlspace after Hurricane Sandy and the following rain storms. She elected to have us come and install a battery back up system to her existing sump pump. The nice this is that our battery back ups fit easily into our sump pump containers.
Our batteries will last through most storms, allowing the homeowner to rest easy and handle other issues that come with heavy storm conditions. Additionally, we hang a service log on every sump pump. This gives the service technician a quick and easy reference if anything goes wrong and lets the homeowner know that we do exactly what we say we are doing.
Each battery back up system has an alarm to let you know if things go wrong. It can be easily silenced for your convenience. But this is a great feature, especially if you haven't changed the battery in a while, you will know when it is working.
Since we used our products on one of our existing sump pumps, we were about to reseal the sump pump lid just the way it started off.
After a major storm like Hurricane Sandy, we get a ton of calls from new and existing homeowners looking to upgrade their sump pumps. we use great sump pumps that last a long time when properly maintained, but they only work when they are getting power. A lot of people on Delmarva lost power during that storm, still more will lose power in the thunderstorms we get here. When you have no power, you need a battery back up sump pump system to take care of the water in the crawlspace or basement.
