Are you protected fully? Is your basement safe from any water intrusion?
The answer is no.

Consider this. Its a cool fall night, and the weather there is a typical Nor’Easter approaching. They are calling for high winds and several inches of rain.
But you are not too concerned, because you have your basement properly waterproofed and you have installed a sump pump as well. All is well until a strong wing gust knocks a tree off and you lose power. CRAP! the sump pump stopped working.
Will your basement become wet from a rising water table? Did it stop raining yet? How many inches did we get? What to do now?

Backup sump pump systems have sources of backup power for pumps to work during power outages that often occur as a result of severe weather situations such as floods and thunderstorms. Main pumps and sump pumps are used simultaneously. If the main pump fails and stops working, that’s where the backup sump pump system comes into play.
Failure of sump pumps can cause a lot of damage. The majority of insurance companies do not include sump pump repair in their policies. Those that do generally will charge you higher deductibles or extra premiums. They also might simply restrict your coverage. Sump pump failures can leave a messy trail behind them, including extensive repairs, cleaning up and paperwork (for insurance). That’s why it’s always a good idea to have a backup sump pump system set in place.
