If your current sump pump is missing backup power, our service professionals can perform a sump pump battery backup installation. The most common sump pump types include the following:

  • Pedestal Sump Pumps – Professional installers mount these sump pumps above your sump pit, giving them convenient access to test and service a system. This budget-friendly option is also easy to repair and highly effective at pumping water out of your pit.
  • Submersible Sump Pumps – This sump pump type sits in your sump pit or well and stays out of sight. Submersible pumps are quieter, but they cost a little more than pedestal options. We will gladly answer all your questions about how much your residential sump pump will cost.
  • Battery Back-Up Pumps – Manufacturers design this option to complement your existing sump pump. A battery backup starts supplying your unit with power whenever a power outage affects your home.

Valuable Information About Sump Pumps

Our sump pump services effectively protect your home’s basement against flooding. The float switches in sump pumps trigger them to turn on and get set off when water in your pit reaches a certain level. After water builds up to this level, your sump pump will begin removing water and pumping it to a well, outdoor area, or nearby storm drain. You want to ensure your sump pump has a battery-powered water-level alarm to protect your home. This simple alarm ensures it warns your family of potential flooding if your pump malfunctions or overflows.
