Why Adding a Battery Backup System Is a Must

Ensuring the safety and integrity of your home is paramount. One critical aspect is managing water – specifically, keeping it out of places it doesn’t belong, like your basement. 

The primary benefit of adding a battery backup system to your basement waterproofing setup cannot be understated. It’s common for heavy storms, which bring the most water into our homes, to knock out power lines. When this happens, a waterproofing system without a battery backup stops working. A battery backup ensures your home remains protected by continuously moving water out and away.

Adding a battery backup system provides homeowners with invaluable peace of mind. Knowing that your basement is safeguarded against water damage during storms—especially when power outages are a common occurrence—allows you to focus on other important tasks or enjoy time with your family.

Water damage can be incredibly costly. Flooding can damage furniture, appliances, personal belongings, and even the structure of your home. By ensuring your waterproofing system is always operational with a battery backup, you’re protecting yourself from potential costly repairs and replacements.

A battery backup system involves a battery-powered pump that operates alongside your primary sump pump. In the event of a power outage, the backup system automatically kicks in, drawing power from the battery to keep the sump pump running.
