Battery Backup Sump Pumps

Battery Backup Sump Pumps in Kansas CityInterior drainage with a sump pump in Kansas City is the best way to remove water from your basement. If water is still seeping into your basement even after you have installed various drainage systems and taken various precautions, it is time to consider installing a battery backup sump pump to assist your primary sump pump. This pump will turn on if the power goes out, or if the sump pump cannot keep up.  Whether or not you already have an interior waterproofing system or sump pump system, Pro Foundation Technology, Inc. can help put in a backup sump pump to help the primary sump pump.

Battery Backup Sump Pumps are a Great Investment

There are several reasons that you may need a battery backup sump pump in Kansas City:

  • Power Outage: If the power goes out, your primary sump pump will turn off and stop functioning. This is when the battery backup sump pump turns on to keep protecting your home.
  • Homes Built in Low Areas: If your home was built in a low area, water may drain into the basement often. This means that the primary sump pump may become overworked. Having a backup sump pump can keep the system working when large amounts of water frequently enter the basement.
  • Severe Storms: During heavy storms, large amounts of water can leak into the basement. This can cause the primary sump pump to become overworked. There is also the danger of the power going out during storms.
  • Rapid Spring Snow Melts: Flash floods and rapid melting can also bring large amounts of water into the basement and cause the sump pump to become overworked.

Anytime that the primary sump pump cannot handle the amount of water in your basement on its own, the battery backup sump pump kicks in to keep water moving out of your basement and away from your home. We install sump pumps made by ECP (Earth Contact Products), one of the leading suppliers of waterproofing products in the country.
