Back up Sump Pumps

There are two types of Back up sump pumps Battery and Water Driven.

Battery Back Up Sump Pumps:
Battery Backup sump Pumps mount above your existing submersible sump pump, these type of pump-s use a DC voltage and Marine or Gel Battery.
These pumps last normally 5-7 hours on a single battery and depending on run time. They should only be installed by professionals and should be tested prior to any storms. An average cost to install varies between $900.00 and $1500.00 depending on installation. We recommend Zoellers Basement Century.

Water Back up Sump Pumps:
Water Back up Sump pumps may only be used where there is a steady supply of water, we generally only recommend this type pump for City Water systems.
This type of pump requires a backflow device be installed on the water line and takes longer to install. The greatest benefit is the pump will work nonstop until there is no water supply. The average cost which can vary depending on availability of water line ranges from 1200.00 to 1800.00. We recommend using the Zoeller Aquanot.
