Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Sump Pump with Battery Backup in Hunterdon County, NJ
Not all sump pumps are created equal. This Hunterdon county home had a problem. During a heavy rain storm the power in the house went out, and the sump pump stopped working. Water flooded the basement, and without electricity the sump pump was as worthless as if it was not there in the first place. The homeowner never wanted to have to worry about this issue again. She got in contact with Quality 1st Basement Systems for a new sump pump that she could rely upon no matter the circumstances.
The homeowner met with basement specialist Mike Bonfante to discuss her options. She felt that she wasted money on her old sump pump, since it didn't work in an emergency. Mike suggested the TripleSafe sump pump. What makes the TripleSafe sump pump different than her failed pump is its battery backup. If the power goes out again during the storm, the battery backup will take over, ready for action. It's no small feat either, the TripleSafe's battery can pump up to 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge. That's roughly equal to the size of a swimming pool! The homeowner was ready to make an investment, she wanted a TripleSafe to keep her and her house safe even in extreme conditions.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed the TripleSafe sump pump and an IceGuard anti-freeze system. The IceGuard attaches onto the sump pump discharge line and prevents water from freezing. Frozen ice can clog the discharge line, backing up the flow of water and causing a flood. The homeowner is glad she was proactive and purchased a TripleSafe sump pump. Now she no longer needs to worry when the power flickers, because the battery backup has her covered!
