Battery Backup

Why Should You Get a New Sump Pump?

If you have an old, broken or low-quality sump pump, it’s probably causing more harm than good to your home. But if you have a high-quality sump pump, you are protecting your home from damaging moisture.

Sump pumps can fail for a variety of reasons, including:

Battery Backup Sump Pump

The best battery backup sump pump plan will include a NexPump Sump Pump System. NexPump is the most failsafe system that has ever been manufactured.

By having a battery backup sump pump, you’ll have extra protection against basement flooding and seepage even when your power goes out, when your primary sump pump can’t keep up with the water flow, or when your primary sump pump fails. This means you also have extra peace of mind. Having sump pump backup power is especially useful in the spring when the severe storms are more likely to cause you to lose power, which shuts down your main sump pump. If this happens to you, your battery backup sump pump will automatically turn on and protect your home until you get power back.

Don’t think of a battery backup sump pump system as a luxury. It’s an absolute necessity. The NexPump System monitors your whole waterproofing system and will switch your sump system from AC power to DC power if there is a power outage. After your AC power is restored, the NexPump System can recharge the battery. You’ll hear alarms when your power goes out, so you know your home is operating on sump pump backup power. The switch is automatic, so you don’t need to act in any way. You can even set up the NexPump System to call your cell phone or send you an email, so you know there has been a power interruption that will affect the rest of your home.

Every 12 hours, your sump pump will automatically run a self-diagnostic check. This includes:

This way you can always be sure that your sump pump is functioning at full capacity.
