Power outages are an annoyance regardless of season, but frigid temps, ice storms and snow melt flooding can make winter power outages especially dangerous for you and your home. The most important thing to know in order to best prepare for such an event is to have a reliable solution in place before it’s too late. 

Typically, we don’t think about flooding in the winter months.  However, basement leaks are actually quite common this time of year – primarily from the continuous cycle of freezing and melting around the foundation of your home. Snow melt flooding combined with an ice storm power outage is nothing to take lightly. The good news, though, is that there is an easy and reliable solution! 

PumpSpy’s Primary Sump Pump Battery Backup Power System is an ideal solution for keeping peace of mind in the dreary winter months. In the event of a power outage, the Backup Power System kicks in automatically to provide power to your primary sump pump – ensuring your home stays dry and safe. Engineered to reliably handle either one Primary Sump Pump (12.5 Amps MAX) or two Primary Sumps simultaneously (with a combined Amp draw not exceeding 12.5) with a pure sine wave output that is designed to simulate the characteristics of typical utility company generated 120 VAC home power. This system automatically switches from 12 VDC to 120 VAC when AC power goes out and automatically reverts back when AC power is restored. 

Our Primary Sump Pump Backup Power System is recommended for use with a minimum 75 Ah Maintenance Free AGM Battery. Protect your home completely and SAVE $168 with our Primary Pump Backup Bundle, which includes both our Primary Sump Pump Backup Power System and Maintenance Free Battery. Don’t wait for the ice storm to hit or the snow to melt. Let PumpSpy do the work so you don’t have to! Call 1-800-PUMPSPY for more information.
