Consider a Backup System

Today we had rain, freezing rain and all the good stuff that goes with it. Early this morning I heard a loud crack, then thud outside my bedroom window. Nice log landed on top of power lines. First thing I thought of is my sump pump, but then realized I had a backup system and would be OK. Peace of mind. There will be plenty to clean up, but my finished basement will stay dry. As I write this we have had over 200 calls with customers wishing they had one. Do you have a finished basement? If you do, and your sump pit runs when it rains then you should consider a battery backup system. A generator is a good option too, but you need to be home to have that run. Even if the power is on, your pump could fail. With a backup system it just runs when it needs to. Check out our backup systems on our site under Products/Services. The Pro Series are the best systems on the market today.

Sump Pit Bag

Yesterday a home inspector text me a pic of a sealed sump pit as part of a Radon mitigation system. He said there were no fire collars on the pipe going through the garage, and that he wanted to show me what he has seen before but never took a picture of, the sump pit bag. This certified company, it seams, could not figure out how to seal the sump pit with two pipes coming out of the pit, so he used some clear plastic and duct taped the rest. Unbelievable. I have heard of someone doing this with a pedestal sump pump so the seller of a home could save money. What a nice guy. What he does not realize is that pedestal sump pumps are air cooled. As soon as you cut off the air supply they can overheat and fail. This, with the buyer, who may not know any better, thinking they are safe. Another reason I will not match another companies price. They just don’t do what we do or seem to care about how their work affects anyone in the future

Rain, Rain and more Rain

Last night and today we have be deluged with Rain with more to come later on. I have received a large number of calls with questions regarding the function of systems and sump pumps. One thing we always try to mention is if you have ever thought of getting a battery backup sump pump system that the time to have one installed is before we seal the sump pit. It only takes 1/4 of inch of water to ruin everything in the basement, so a backup system is cheap insurance.

PHC Pro Series 2400 Battery Backup Sump Pump System.A backup system can run when power goes out, when your main pump fails, or when your main pump can’t keep up it will add pumping volume capacity and hopefully avoid any water issues in the basement. We sell Pro Series pumps and backup systems. They are the best quality in my opinion and have the best pumping volume capacity. Don’t wait for an emergency to get a backup system. Plan ahead, it’s peace of mind.
