Back It Up: The Importance of Having a Backup Sump Pump

Picture this scene: It’s really coming down out there. The amount of rain has progressed from “cats and dogs” through “torrential” all the way to “Biblical proportions.” Meanwhile, you’re curled up on the couch, grateful that the rain is outside and you are inside, that you have warmth and light and dryness, and that you can hear the sump pump cycle on from time to time, an almost soothing hum breaking through the relentless pounding of the rain on the roof.

And then the power goes out.

Whether this is a minor inconvenience or a hugely expensive disaster depends mostly on one thing: whether or not you have a backup sump pump.

Why You Should Get  a Backup Sump Pump

Here in Buffalo, NY, we are no strangers to severe weather. Whether we’re dealing with howling snowstorms or crashing thunderstorms, the precipitation often comes down hard and fast. Power outages aren’t uncommon, either.

Meanwhile, your sump pump has one major purpose: to keep water out of your basement. Needless to say, it works harder when there’s precipitation. As long as the power stays on, things are fine; but if your sump pump has no power when the rain or the snow is at its worst, then you are looking at a flooded basement.

Of course, if you’re home, you might be able to deal with it – filling old buckets or empty storage containers with water to buy time until the power comes back on. But what if you’re stuck at work all day? Or out of town? 

In times like these, it’s good to know you have a backup sump pump, so whether you’re stranded at work or lying on a beach hundreds of miles away, you have nothing to worry about.
