Combination Primary with Battery Backup

The Combination Sump Pump

Combination sump pumps are unfamiliar to many homeowners; therefore we are going to provide information that will not only help you understand what they are but also help you to discover how convenient they are to install. We will be covering the following topics. Feel free to select only those topics of interest.
 

What Are Combination Primary With Battery Backup Sump Pumps?

Combination sump pumps are two sump pumps configured to use one main discharge pipe. Each of the two pumps serves a different purpose and operates differently. One of the pumps is a primary sump pump or main pump and the other pump is known as a battery backup pump.
 
The primary pump depends upon electrical current to run. It is the main pump that is to be used day after day. The battery backup pump is the secondary pump and depends upon deep cycle marine batteries to run. The backup pump is meant to be used only when the primary sump pump fails.

Why Have Manufacturers Created the Combination Sump Pumps?

Manufacturers want their products to be useful for the homeowner. They created the combination primary with battery backup pump to help the homeowner for three reasons. 
 
First, pump manufacturers want the homeowner to have a backup for their primary sump pump when it fails. All primary pumps will fail sometime during their usage whether it be because of a primary pump mechanical problem or a failure of the electricity. The most commen primary pump failure is the switch.  
 
Secondly, they know which backup pump has the pumping capacity to support a primary pump if it should fail. The manufacturers carefully test their pumps for performance and know what the pumping rate of a battery backup pump should be to take over pumping if the primary pump fails. The manufacturer assembles the primary and backup pump that support the required pumping capacity. 
 
Thirdly, pump manufacturers want sump pump installation to be easy. With a combo pump, the manufacturer has already done the plumbing of the two pumps and the installation of check valves for both pumps. All the homeowner needs to do is attach the discharge pipe from the combo pump to their existing discharge piping system. 
 
 

Why Is Combination Pump Installation So Easy?

The combination sump pump comes preassembled from the manufacturer. It comes assembled with the primary and battery backup attached to a single discharge pipe. The check valves are already installed either at the discharge port (toward the base of each pump) or in the single piping which is configured to attach to a single discharge pipe. The homeowner is not responsible to plumb the two pumps. This has already been done. The homeowner only needs to measure the diameter of the existing pit, identify the horse power required for the primary pump, and then buy the pump.

Review By Comparison Combination Sump Pump Manufacturers

 

How do manufacturers compare? What makes them unique?

  • Basement Watchdog (Glentronics), Wayne, Zoeller, Liberty and Flotec are the only manufacturers of combination primary and backup sump pump systems.
  • Each of these manufacturers includes a 1/3 horse power or a 1/2 horse power primary pump with the battery backup.
  • Sumpro is an inverter unit which converts battery (DC) power to electrical (AC) current thus allowiing the homeowner to use the primary pump as a backup pump as well. The primary pump is plugged into the Sumpro, but does not use the converted DC power until the electricity goes out. The advantage to this type of system is that the more powerful primary pump can operate during power failure.
  • The primary sump pump for the Wayne combination sump pump systems uses the Switch Genius Technology. This technology lasts five times as long before failure. 
  • Wayne offers the longest warranty - five years.
  • The Sumpro System with a primary pump can pump the greatest amount of water in an hour (5040 GPH); however their system is also the most expensive.
