What is a Backup Sump Pump?
Backup sump pump repair is important so you aren’t left in the dust when an emergency happens. Back up sump pumps are used to supplement primary sump pumps. Backup sump pumps come into play when the power goes out, the motor overheats, or if there’s too much water flowing. If you need backup sump repair or installation in Rockville, MD, please call Service Force Plumbing at 301-841-6284! Our plumbing contractors are able to install and repair battery back up, water-powered, generator-powered, above-pump, and in-pump backups.
Types of Backup Sump Pumps We Service
We are able to repair and install a wide variety of sump pump backups, but there are two common types of backup sump pumps that we can install and repair.
- Battery-Powered Sump Pumps: This backup sump pump is powered by a powerful, long-life battery that holds a charge for a long time. When the primary pump fails, the backup system kicks on and removes water from the basement.
- Water-Powered Sump Pumps: When the primary pump fails, the municipal water supply switches on, and flows through a higher chamber. This chamber is sometimes as high as the ceiling. Also called the “Venturi effect,” this positioning enables the moving water to create a suction that pulls water from the sump pit and discharges it outside, along with fresh water.
