Sump pump systems are an important part of your interior drainage. Because the weather in Denver, Colorado is often subject to sudden changes that result in large thaws or sever storms, it is important to make sure that your sump pump can keep up. Often, one sump pump is not enough. Battery backup sump pumps can take over for the main sump pump when the power goes out, or help the primary pump keep up if there is a large amount of water entering the basement. Rapid Foundation Repair offers various battery back up sump pump installation options to keep your basement dry in any conditions.
Flooded basements can be a huge problem. Not only does the water in the basement cause damage to your personal possessions and leave behind water stains, but it can also weaken the concrete in your foundation and foundation walls, leading to major structural issues throughout the home. Continually wet basements or crawlspaces can also cause mold or mildew growth, which may result in poor air quality in your home and health problems for you and your family. If water is constantly pooling in your home and flooding your basement after storms, it may be a sign that your sump pump cannot keep up.
Installing a battery backup sump pump in addition to the primary sump pump can help with this issue. These battery operated sump pumps monitor the entire waterproofing system with a controller and switch the sump pump system from AC to DC power if there is an interruption in the electrical power system. The controllers recharge the battery as soon as the AC power turns back on. An alarm will go off to inform you when this happens, but there is no manual action needed for most systems.
AS is the case with AC power sump pumps, battery backup sump pumps vary greatly in the performance and features. The key to picking an efficient system is to pay attention to the gallons per hour. Inefficient systems will drain the battery power much quicker than other, more efficient versions.
