Battery Backup Sump Pump Systems – Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Greensboro & Piedmont Triad, NC
With any basement waterproofing system the question becomes … what do you do with all the water? The Greenserve way involves funneling the water from the sub-floor drainage system to a sump pump tank to collect the water. The water is then pumped outside, away from your home. But … what happens during a storm that causes the electricity to go out … no electricity means the pump does not function … that’s when Greenserve’s emergency battery backup system makes sure your basement stays dry even if the power does go out.
Backup Battery Systems – Why Are They Important?
Sump pumps operate using your home’s electricity, but there is always a chance that the same storm that is able to flood your home with groundwater, can knock your power out. During a big electrical storm, with heavy rains, is when you need your sump pump to work the most! When that happens, then it’s time for the battery backup system to kick in. There is a battery that’s continuously kept charged by the backup system, and its job is to provide you with continuous support until your power is restored.
Sump pumps lose power for a variety of reasons. Aside from the obvious power failure, it’s possible for a circuit to trip, especially for pumps plugged into GFI outlets. A sump pump contains moving parts that can malfunction or wear out over the years. The best way to make sure your home is protected from a sump pump failure is to make sure that you have a battery backup pump ready to operate in an emergency.
The sump pump is the core of any basement or crawl space waterproofing system but like any mechanical utility within your home, your sump pump can eventually fail. That’s why at Greenserve, we offer the GrateSump™ Plus and GrateSump™ Plus ll Battery Backup Systems, to make sure that your basement stays dry all the time.
