Why You Should Install a Backup Sump Pump, Rochester, New York

If your basement is prone to flooding, you may have installed a sump pump to protect your home and possessions from incurring damage. However, a single sump pump may not be enough. Even the best-maintained pump is prone to failure. To avoid substantial damage, you should have a battery or a generator-powered backup sump pump handy. Below is a brief guide to the benefits of this emergency system.

How Does a Backup Sump Pump Work

When this happens, your basement may flood, causing damage to appliances, belongings, and even the structure of your home. A backup pump is installed with a switch that triggers if the main pump fails, keeping water from creating a mess.

Why Should You Install a Backup Sump Pump

You may think your current sump pump is adequate and in good condition, but it’s better to plan for the unexpected. Debris could clog a pump that’s otherwise fully operational, and an unexpected mechanical failure could put your basement at risk. High-quality systems should include a warning system that will alert you if your primary pump fails. That way, you know that you have an issue on your hand, and can call a professional for repairs.
