Backup Sump Pumps Prevent Basement Flooding
A broken sump pump and a basement full of water are not every homeowner’s dream come true, but it could be reality without a backup sump pump. The average life span of a sump pump varies by manufacturer and the conditions under which the pump has to operate. Some last for ten or more years, while others may start having problems after only a few.
Eventually, they all suffer problems, and according to Murphy’s Law, your sump pump will probably fail when you’re least prepared to deal with the consequences. Avoid the trouble now by installing a secondary unit meant to kick in if the other fails.
Installing a secondary sump or a backup pump in your basement is like buying an insurance policy. You might not need it every day, but it will be more than worth the cost in an emergency.
