How to Install a Battery Backup to an Existing Sump Pump

Installing a battery backup is possible to do on your own, especially if you have experience working with electrical systems. The basic steps include:

  • Mount the backup battery to the wall near the sump pump. Safety is the most important thing here, so make sure you have the instruction manual on hand. and it's best to enclose the battery in a battery box made of safe material.
  • Connect the battery to your sump pump. Make sure all switches are set to the OFF position and connect the cable to the corresponding +/- connections. Plug the pump into the battery, and plug the battery into the correct wall outlet and switch it ON.
  • Run a test to make sure it's working. Cycle your sump pump to check that all systems are running properly before pulling the battery's power cord from the wall to simulate a power failure. Cycle your sump pump again to check that the battery is working as intended.

Essentially, this system will act as a sensor between your sump pump and your home's electrical supply that will trigger when it shuts off. Whether you don't feel comfortable installing it on your own or you simply don't have the time, our team of expert technicians is ready to help.
