Does your home already have a sump pump installed to protect your basement from flooding when it rains? While sump pumps are undeniably essential, they often run into issues in the event of a power outage. In fact, they can stop working entirely, which leaves your basement vulnerable to flooding.

At At-Ease Plumbing, we offer affordable backup pump installation and reliable backup pump repair in Plano, TX and the surrounding areas. To learn more, or to get started, call us today at (972) 947-2191!
What Is A Back-Up Pump?
As we described earlier, a backup pump is a pump that will start working when the power goes out. Backup pumps are typically battery powered or water powered, and can even alert you when they are activated. Essentially, if the main sump pump fails due to a lack of power or anything else, the floats on the backup pump will be activated. Once activated, the backup pump will resume the activities of the original pump, until the original pump is back to working order. Nobody wants to deal with a power outage during a storm, let alone flooding too. With a backup pump installation, you can avoid flooding due to sump pump failure. Because your back up pump does not receive a ton of use, it is important that you check on it from time to time to make sure it is still in working order. If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your backup pump, be sure to call us right away for fast and affordable backup pump repair!
