If your home or building has a sump pump, then you need to seriously
consider installing a water powered backup sump pump.
Water powered backup sump pumps are an additional de-watering device
that sits alongside your primary pump. In the event of pump failure or a power
outage, the backup pump is activated saving your home or building from being flooded.
Water powered backup sump pumps use city supplied water pressure to siphon out sump water. The success of this pump system relies on constant water pressure being supplied by the municipality. Approximately two gallons of city water are used to siphon one gallon of sump water.
The pump is ingenious, but in order for it to work properly when you need it most, it must be installed properly. Our experienced team of plumbing professionals have installed hundreds of these water powered backup sump pumps over the years. The plumber will explain to you the importance of which pump you select, and the proper sizing of the water piping to the pump.
