This is the time of year that many of us are planning to take our vacations. Arranging all of our travel plans. Booking the flights or planning the best route to drive. Making hotel/motel reservations. It’s something we look forward to every year…a time to relax and enjoy ourselves with family and friends. But what most of us don’t plan is what we would do if our sump pump fails during a heavy rainstorm while we are away. No one wants to think about it, but unfortunately, this does happen. Our sump pump may be old and fails from age or overuse. Or the power goes out for an extended period of time and the pump doesn’t run. Then we return from our vacation rested and relaxed, until we notice that damp smell coming from our basement.

And no one wants to end their vacation that way.

That’s why you should install a PumpSpy Battery Backup System. This system comes with a backup sump pump and cellular connection, so you can check on your primary pump, backup pump and battery while you are away on vacation, to make sure your system is in good working condition. And if there is a problem with your primary pump, the backup pump will kick on. If the power goes out, the battery backup system will keep the pump running. You will know the status of your system because PumpSpy will send you updates and alerts with the 24/7 Free Monitoring.

And while you are away on vacation, you can have those alerts sent to a neighbor or relative so they can take any necessary steps should there be a problem.

It’s an insurance policy for your home and your vacation. And as we have mentioned in a previous blog, insurance companies are changing their policies to make homeowners responsible for any flooded basements due to their pump not being in good working condition. With a PumpSpy Battery Backup System, you will have detailed proof your pumps were working in case there ever is an problem.

So enjoy your vacation worry-free, with a PumpSpy Battery Backup System. And don’t forget to bring the sun-screen!
