Backup Sump Pump Installation in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming

Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming residents are no strangers to heavy rains and thunderstorms. Power outages that happen during torrential rains put your sump pump at risk for failure, making your home susceptible to flooding. Having a backup sump pump installed is an easy solution to protect your basement.

At Yellowstone Structural Systems, we can have your backup pump and drainage system installed in as little as two days. Reach out to us for a free consultation to learn more about which is right for your property.

Why Basements Need Sump Pumps

Your sump pump system is designed to help protect against flooding. The pump sits in a basin that collects water coming from either the rain or the soil around your foundation. When this water gets high enough to potentially flood your basement, it’s pumped away from your home into your perimeter drain.

Unfortunately, main sump pumps don’t work without electricity. That means, if your home loses power during a thunderstorm, it won’t work to pump out flooding from heavy rains. Plus, pumps can malfunction or fail as they become older. In any case, it’s critical to have a backup sump pump that doesn’t rely on electricity.

The Benefits of Battery-Powered Backup Pumps

Backup sump pumps work on battery power and kick in if your main pump fails to work. These are simple and effective solutions to keep your basement protected in case of power failure or malfunction. These are all detrimental scenarios that a battery-powered pump can save your home from damage in:

  • Power outage
  • Broken float switch
  • Tripped circuit breaker
  • Burnt out pump
  • Clogged components
