Protect Your Home and Belongings with a PRO Series Backup Sump Pump System
During heavy rainfalls, water can pool around a home, saturating the ground around its foundation. When this happens, water can leak through cracks and seams of a home and flood a basement. Water damage can be extremely devastating to a home. Flooding can weaken a home’s structural integrity with complications like wood rot, destroy treasured belongings, damage the electrical systems, and cause mold infestations. Outbreaks of mold can cause long-term health complications and can be exceedingly difficult to eliminate effectively.
Fortunately, most homes with basements have sump pumps in place to combat basement flooding. Unfortunately, sump pumps can fail to operate effectively from time to time. That’s why the team of expert plumbing technicians at Andy’s Pipe Dream recommend that every home we service has the Pro Series Battery Backup Sump Pump System.
What is a Sump Pump?
In the lowest part of a home’s basement, a specifically designed drop-off, or pit, is constructed to allow any excess water in a basement to flow into it. A sump pump is a plumbing device that sucks out this water and pumps it outside to drain into the ground away from the home.
At Andy’s Pipe Dream, we recommend that all our customers install the Zoeller flow mate 0.5-HP 115-Volt Cast Iron Submersible Sump Pump in their homes. One of the most powerful sump pumps in the market today, the Zoeller Half-Horsepower Sump Pump can eliminate up to 60 gallons of water a minute. This higher capacity is usually powerful enough to prevent most home basements from flooding caused by environmental factors like heavy rainfall.
However, even innovative equipment, like the Zoeller flow mate 0.5-HP 115-Volt Cast Iron Submersible Sump Pump, can fail to external factors like loss of power from the electrical grid. This can make a home susceptible to basement flooding during circumstances like a power outage in a thunderstorm. We at Andy’s Pipe Dream recommend our customers install the PRO Series Sump Pump Battery Backup System to protect their homes during such a vulnerable time.
Protecting Your Home with the PRO Series Battery Backup Sump Pump System Grants You Peace of Mind
Most standard sump pump models require power from the home’s electrical grid to operate. A thunderstorm that knocks the power out during a heavy rainfall can make a home vulnerable to flooding without a means to counteract it. With the power out for hours or sometimes days, the resulting water damage can be both devastating and expensive. For this reason, we recommend that our clients have us install a PRO Series Backup Sump Pump System with a battery backup. Although it does not have the same level of water elimination as the much more powerful models, the PRCC PRO Series backup sump pump system does offer a homeowner some peace of mind that their home is being protected from flooding during circumstances like a power outage.
Installation is Easy, and the Backup Battery is Virtually Maintenance Free
Andy’s Pipe Dream has relied on PRCC PRO Series backup sump pump systems since we started our business in 2003. The installation of the PRCC PRO Series Backup Sump Pump System is typically fast and easy. Unlike prior backup sump pump models that were unreliable because their high maintenance batteries would often short out a backup sump pump system, the PRCC PRO Series Backup Sump Pump System is both reliable and hassle-free. With our installations, we use the most dependable battery on the market today, the ultra-reliable maintenance-free B12-100 battery.
For added peace of mind, the PRCC PRO Series backup sump pump system also has a computer-controlled unit that allows you to monitor your system via your smartphone. This computer-controlled system alerts you of possible problems that you may be unaware are occurring. This grants homeowners the extra level of monitoring to help them better react to uncontrolled basement flooding.
We recommend that all our customers invest in regular maintenance visits to check your sump pump and backup systems twice a year. This allows our team the opportunity to help our customers prevent any glaring issues before they develop into an actual plumbing emergency and jeopardize your home.
