For this reason, I always suggest for homeowners to purchase a battery backup sump pump. These pumps have all the benefits of a primary sump pump, with the added benefit of battery power in the case of a power outage.
Another option during a power outage is to plug your sump pump into a portable generator. If you are experiencing a power outage and you own a portable generator, one of the first things you should connect is your sump pump. You could save thousands of dollars in potential flood damage.
Consider these options, and make sure your home is protected during your next power outage.
