Why a Battery Backup Sump Pump Makes a Huge Difference

Water damage is one of the most expensive and inconvenient disasters a homeowner can face. Flooding can cause serious damage to your basement, foundation, and possessions. Water infiltration often occurs due to a power outage, and your standard sump pump won’t be able to fend off the excess water. It’s crucial to have a reliable backup plan to protect your home in case of a power outage. 

The primary reason to invest in a battery backup system is a power outage. Standard sump pumps rely on electricity, and they won’t function in case of a power cut-off. A battery backup sump pump gives you peace of mind in case of a power outage. 

A significant rainstorm can quickly overload your basement sump pump and cause it to malfunction in the middle of the storm. With a battery backup sump pump in place, you have extra protection against the flood. 

Water damage happens silently, and it can have a long-term impact on your home structure, foundation, and possessions. Mold, mildew, and decaying objects can develop over time and lead to costly repairs. 

Many insurance companies offer discounts to homeowners who have a battery backup sump pump installed. This is because having a backup plan in place shows that you’re prepared and take precautions to protect your home from water damage.
