And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.

Our second type is a battery backup sump pump can be installed in the same pump pit as the primary pump. Some battery backup pumps will tell you the status of the power supply. Some models will provide a continuous steady beep if the battery is getting low. If the battery has a partial charge, it will produce a chirp similar to that of a smoke detector with a low battery.

Depending on the size of the battery and the height of the sump pumps discharge point, some models can pump up to 6 or more hours. Most battery backup pumps are not as powerful as a standard sump pump that operates on 110 volts of current.
A standard 110 volt 1/3 horsepower sump pump can almost always discharge about 35 gallons of water per minute assuming the discharge point is no more than 10 feet above the pump.
Depending on the model we install a battery backup model that will pump up to 20 gallons per minute with no more than 10-foot discharge height.
