Battery Back-Up | Sump Pumps & Sump Pump System Installation
UltraSump® Battery Backup System
The SmartSump and SuperSump is available with or without an optional UltraSump Battery Backup pumping system. The UltraSump has a second pump in the event the primary Zoeller pump is not working, a second switch, in case of switch failure, and second power source in case of power failure.
The UltraSump can pump over 8,000 gallons of water out of your bay area crawl space from the energy stored in the special sealed, long-term standby battery. There is a special charging system that keeps the battery charged when the battery is on, an alarm to tell you the secondary pump is operating. This protection is optional but highly recommended.
Unlike a car or marine battery, the battery supplied as part of the UltraSump backup sump pump system is specially engineered to withstand long periods of remaining unused. So if you’re considering an alternate system, be sure that the battery connected to your sump pump system is not simply a car or marine battery. The UltraSump also comes standard with a charging system to automatically recharge your battery once power has been reconnected to the system.
You can rest easy knowing the UltraSump is on the job, especially when you are away from home. Its outstanding gallon-per-minute output, automatic electronic “smart” charger, heavy-duty motor, and reliable switch are a winning combination.
Each Basement Systems’ sump pump basin (the patented SuperLiner) and its matching sump pump cover form airtight bonds and are much easier on the eyes. These airtight lids also help to quiet sump pump noise.
The air-tight sump pump cover of an installed SuperSump with an UltraSump battery backup sump pump also features an airtight basement floor drain (to drain water out of your basement in the event of an interior plumbing or other leak), a WaterWatch sump pump alarm (that sounds off in the event of pump failure for any reason, including a power outage), a “smart” charger (to keep the battery charged when AC power is available — a Christmas-tree display shows battery status and an alarm alerts the homeowner to power failure), and a clean, finished look that allows nothing to fall in and is strong enough to stand on.
