A water-powered backup sump pump installed by Roto-Rooter will prevent your basement from flooding, even during a power outage, or if your primary sump pump has failed. It requires no batteries or electricity and it may be the most reliable backup sump pump you can buy.
Water-powered backup sump pumps use your home's municipal water pressure to power the pump. When a float switch is triggered, it opens a valve sending water from your home's water supply through a pump ejector and creating a powerful suction. It's the Venturi Principle and it siphons water out of your basement sump pit, directing it to a storm drain or a detention basin to prevent basement flooding.
Your Roto-Rooter plumber is a sump pump expert who can provide backup sump pump options to fit almost any home or budget. Call Roto-Rooter at 1-800-GET-ROTO to learn more about Venturi water-powered backup sump pumps.
