Sump pumps stop working when the power goes out, unless you have a home generator. A-Archer Sewer & Plumbing Service  highly recommend having a backup pump system installed in case of an emergency to help prevent flooding. There are a few different systems available.  Each has a place and time to use. When you call A-Archer Sewer & Plumbing Service we will determine what system would work best for your situation.

First there is a battery backup pump that uses a DC pump. The model that A-Archer Sewer & Plumbing recommends is the PHCC 2400 system.

The next system is a battery inverter which provides power to your AC pump during a power outage.  A-Archer Sewer & Plumbing Service  like to install two pumps with this system with an alternator that switches each pump per cycle.  The best inverter system is the SumpPro.

back up pump

Another popular system is a water powered sump pump.  A-Archer Sewer & Plumbing service does not recommend this type of backup pump due to the waste of water and potential of causing a flood if the pump breaks.  Most municipales codes will not allow these to be installed as well.
