When mold, flood water and other undesirable forces find an opportunity to take hold, they will! That's why we recommend using a sump pump battery backup in your crawlspace so that your sump pumps never stop working, even when the power goes off!
Just like its namesake, the 'Pump Sentry' sump pump battery backup stands guard 24 hours a day and instantly has you covered in the event of a power outage. Things go wrong more often than you might think. During a hard rain, a crawlspace can be overwhelmed by a sudden in pouring of water. Combine that with a lightning strike in the wrong area causing a power outage and you could find yourself with a bad situation on your hands. And depending on the type and extent of damage done, the financial impact can range from the hundreds to the tens of thousands.
Buy yourself the peace of mind by equipping your crawlspace with a sump pump battery backup. The Pump Sentry 822PS will automatically detect power outages and transfer power to the backup battery, which it spends most of its time charging. Your sump pump stays on, and your crawlspace stays dry!

Q: Is installation difficult? Installation is relatively painless and typically takes around 10 minutes. Simply mount the unit on a shelf or wall, make the connections as specified in the instruction manual, and plug it into a standard wall outlet.
Q: How long can the unit run during an outage? During an outage, the Pump Sentry 822P can ensure continuous power to your sump pump for anywhere from 5 to 70+ hours on a single battery depending upon the capacity of the battery you're using in your setup. With a multiple battery configuration you can expect the pump sentry to provide 50 to 118+ hours of operation.
Q: Is there a warranty? Yes! The manufacturer provides an unconditional warranty of up to 2 years for the Pump Sentry, although the warranty does not cover mistakes in installation that you may cause. But if you follow the easy instructions in the manual you'll be fine.
Q: How long does the unit last? The Pump Sentry is designed and manufactured to last. It's very durable and has an operating life expectancy of around 10 years.
Q: What battery should I use with the unit? We recommend using the OPTIMA BLUE D27M-800 or any similar maintenance-free marine battery.
Q: How loud is the unit? The Pump Sentry has no moving parts and produces virtually no noise during its operation.
Q: Why does the battery monitor say High Charge? The charger always starts at High Charge and then works its way down to Low, then to Fully. Every time the power goes out or the unit is disconnected, it's going to start at high charge to test the battery, no matter how charged the battery is. Depending on the size and charge of the battery, it can say High Charge for anywhere from 15-30 minutes to up to 24 hours.
Q: Do I need to install any additional sump pumps? No! The Pump Sentry works with the pump you have, ensuring that power is available to it in the event of an outage. Thus, there is no need to replace your current sump pump, or add an additional sump pump.
Q: What is the shipping cost? The shipping cost is included in the price so there are no additional charges.
