A battery backup sump pump system is a second complete pump system, powered by a 12v battery, that is set up in the sump basin.  It stands guard waitng for the time it may be needed.

  • Runs and pumps out the water if your power goes out
  • Will run and empty the sump even if your main pump can't
  • Smart charging system keeps your battery topped-off and ready to work

It's just a little extra "insurance" to protect
your biggest investment:  Your Home!

* Note that many of our cast iron pumps also have stainless steel motor covers!


To order a pump, it is usually best to visit one of the retailers that sells Flotec products.
