5 reasons you need a battery back-up sump pump system in your home
When you live in an area that’s prone to large storms, or if you encounter power brown-outs on a regular basis, the last thing you want to worry about is your sump pump. You depend on it to prevent your basement from flooding but how can an electric pump help you if the power goes out? Keep reading for five reasons to have a professional plumber install a battery back-up sump pump system in your Edmonton home today.
1. Built-in monitoring
Battery back-up sump pump systems, like the PHCC Pro Series, have built-in computers that monitor things like the battery level, the occurrence of power source failures and whether or not the pump has been activated. You can also connect battery back-up pumps to your security system or home Wi-Fi and have them send you an alert whenever there’s an issue.
2. Trickle-charged battery
Battery back-up sump pump systems feature a built-in trickle charge that keeps your battery fully charged at all times. The charge switches between AC and DC power so your battery is always at maximum capacity without running the risk of overcharging.
3. An easy upgrade
A battery back-up is an easy upgrade that the plumbing professionals from Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating can fit into any existing home system or simply add on to your new sump basin installation.
4. Preventative cure
Pretty much every Edmonton plumber will agree that the best way to deal with a crisis is to prevent the crisis from happening in the first place. With a battery back-up sump pump system you can avoid having to call an emergency plumber and deal with the costly clean-up that would come with a flooded basement.
5. Peace of mind
The biggest benefit of installing a battery back-up to work with your new or existing sump pump system is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your sump pump will work in all types of weather. When large storms cause power outages in your area, you can rest easy knowing that your basement will be kept safe and dry.
