Don't Wait Until It's Too Late to Have Your Sump Pump Checked!

Flooded Basement


Don't wait until it's too late  to have your sump pump serviced! A sump pump water backup can be a major catastrophe- proper sump pump maintenance is critical to ensure that it does its job to avoid this problem!


Purchasing an Ultra Sump Battery Back-Up System is a good idea to avoid flooding when your primary sump pump is overwhelmed or when you have a power outage. Most power outages are caused by heavy thunderstorms that bring huge amounts of rain very quickly. This is when you will need your pump the most! If you lose power, the Ultra Sump Battery Back-Up System will automatically take over to get rid of the water as the pit fills up. When the power is restored the battery will automatically start to recharge for the next emergency.


The lifespan of an Ultra Sump Battery Back-Up is measured in gallons pumped- NOT by the operating hours. Our Ultra Sump Battery Back-Up System can pump out more than 12,000 gallons of water on a single charge!  That's about the size of a small swimming pool! But the battery back-up only works when maintained and charged properly. Adirondack Basement Systems recommend having your system serviced every year and you should consider changing the battery every 3 to 5 years.


Sump Pumps are the homeowner's first line of defense against basement flooding, make sure that your sump pump is able to handle the job when you need it most. If you haven't had your system serviced in the past year (or aren't sure when your last service was), call us today and make sure your home is protected!
