In the event of a power outage, a backup sump pump that is driven by water will keep your basement safe. This one-of-a-kind gadget is powered entirely by your local water supply and does not require any energy to function. If you have well water, the water-powered sump will not function for you because it is driven by municipal water pressure instead.
The Venturi effect is used to run backup pumps that are driven by water. When the float for the backup pump is triggered, it opens a valve that connects the backup pump to the city’s water system. It is in a limited region in the pump ejector that the municipal water flows, increasing the water velocity while simultaneously decreasing the pressure.
How does a sump pump work?
Water in your sump rises, lifting the float, which automatically opens the valve, enabling municipal water to flow through the ejector jet of your pump. A nozzle and chamber are located within this jet, and they are responsible for converting the water pressure into a vacuum.
Do I need a backup sump pump?
Raise of the float in your sump automatically opens the valve and allows municipal water to pass via the pump’s ejector jet, enabling it to drain. An internal nozzle and chamber transform the water pressure into a vacuum, which is then expelled from the jet’s interior.
How do I know if my sump pump is working?
Check Your Water Pressure: Water-powered sump pumps require municipal water (rather than well water) and a water pressure of at least 40 pounds per square inch (psi). It is possible to discover how much water pressure you have by performing your own tests with a water pressure gauge on a normal hose bib (like this one ).
Why a basepump water powered pump?
This might be the difference between having a dry basement and having a wet basement during a multi-day power outage. The Basepump water-powered pumps that we sell are also extremely efficient, extracting two gallons of sump pit water for every one gallon of city water that is utilized.
