In response to Re: Battery Backup for a Sump Pump
: : If the pump is not designed to work with a battery, then you need an inverter to change the battery power to 110 AC. Even with that the pump would deplete the battery charge in a fairly short time.

: : : I have a working sump pump! When I lose power for any length of time my basement floods. I want to install a battery backup to my current sump pump without purchasing another sump pump/battery backup combination. Is there something available out there?

: Yes, there is go to this url, but it's expensive!

It's called the SUMPRO and it costs $1240.00 plus $55.00 S&H PLUS the costs of the two batteries (approx $250.00). It will last approx 8 to 17 hours depending on the size of your sump pump.
