Battery Backup Systems

An accepted reality in basement waterproofing is that all reliable basement waterproofing systems are based on a pumping unit. Pumping units are run on electricity and are a mechanical device prone to possible failure. Central Ontario Seepage Solutions recommends Battery Backup Units and secondary pumps on all pump locations. We offer only the best Battery Backup Units on the market. Storms, power outages and unforeseen mechanical failure are all unforeseen realities. We recommend every Central Ontario Seepage Solutions customer plan for the unforeseen. Central Ontario Seepage Solutions also offers a commercial version of the Battery Backup Unit which runs off of a power converter to operate a second 1/3 or ½ h.p. sump pump in the event of a power outage. This configuration will discharge a larger volume of water for those customers with heavy flow in their basement.


Battery operated backup sump pumps are designed to backup primary residential sump pumps in case of pump or power failure. A must for those installations where an inoperative sump pump cannot be tolerated. A separate float switch and built-in alarm automatically starts the backup system and activates a warning buzzer to protect against high water damage and warn of primary pump failure. The backup pump will also operate if the main pump cannot keep up with the water inflow helping to keep all of your valuables safe and dry.
