Back Up Sump Pump

First off I want to say thank you to the very patient people at Pentair Water, as we initually tried to get this back up sump pump installed in April, but ran into technical difficulties, and then hired a plumber who disappeared for 2 months, so we FINALLY have it installed.

About 6 months ago our basement flooded (see photo above) because our sump pump stopped working properly, and I'm sure that has happened to many of you. It's such a stressful and frustrating experience because it not only ruins the boxes and items on your basement floor, but can also ruin the flooring itself, and can cause mold and mildew to grow. Thankfully companies like Simer make back up sump pumps which are battery run. In the event of a power outage, our sump pump will continue to work, preventing our basement from becoming an indoor swimming pool.

I would definitely recommend this product if you have frequent power outages, and if there is even a slight possibility that your basement may flood during a storm. It's very reassuring to know that we don't have to rush home during a storm to check on our basement. While we didn't feel confidant in installing it ourselves, the plumber didn't seem to have any trouble with installation.

Thank you again to the great people at Pentair Water!
