You need a sump pump to protect your home from the catastrophic impact of flooding. But when the power's out, a standard sump pump can't do its job. And, if you're away from home, you won't know what's going on. You and your house will both be in the dark. An advanced Battery Backup Sump Pump System is the solution.

According to FEMA, just one inch of water can cause $25,000 worth of damage to a home.

A basement flood can damage your home's foundation, framing, drywall, plumbing system, electrical system, plus furniture and precious, often irreplaceable belongings.

The avergage flood insurance claim payment over the past five years was about $69,000.
