What Back Up Battery Sump Pumps Can Do For You
A sump pumps backup battery is always charged and ready to go. What happens is if your actual sump pump should lose power, your back up battery sump pump steps in and takes over.
Always remember that this is something you should consider to be an additional and provisional step taken. As we said it’s like a layer of insurance- don’t consider it to be a replacement if your actual pump has been malfunctioning somehow.
Never, never EVER utilize an extension cord to plug for back up battery sump pumps. This is the type of thing that pulls a ton of power and if you use an extension cord you are at high risk for a fire- DON’T DO IT
Check The Breakers
Before introducing any device in your home that requires power, you should always be certain that your circuit breaker has a strong enough capacity to handle the device. The combination of your sump pump and your battery backup charger is going to pull power. If your breakers aren’t up to par you will wind up with nothing working and water flooding your basement – make sure!
