Do I need a Battery Backup Sump Pump system in Swampscott, MA?
Your home is probably the largest investment you’ve ever made. A sump pump is necessary in many Swampscott homes to help keep their basements from flooding during inclement weather.
What is a Sump Pump?
It is an electric pump, usually found in the basement of a home, which either pumps water to the outside of the home or into the drainage pipe system. These pumps are extremely important when flood prevention is necessary in your home. Water leakage or flooding can be a very dirty and damaging occurrence resulting in water damage and property damage.
A battery backup sump pump system automatically begins pumping during power outages, when the primary pump fails or can’t keep up with incoming water seepage.
Why do I need a Battery Backup Sump Pump System?
Power Outages: The same weather that is producing that water invading your basement is also probably bringing with it possible power outages. A loss of power means your current sump pump can’t do its job.
Valuables: The basement is a family area for some of us, a storage area for many of us, but for most of us, the location of our heating system and/or water heater. Water damage can destroy all of that when a sump pump cannot work due to power failures.
Peace of Mind: Sump Pumps can fail for many reasons … from clogs to the age of units. Knowing that you have a backup system available to pump water out of your basement, as you sit in your home listening to the pounding rain fall outside, is a blessing. We all have enough to worry about. A failing sump pump due to an electrical outage is something that can easily be prepared for.
