The unfortunate truth is this: as with any mechanical utility, your sump pump can eventually fail. Because, like other machine components, the moving parts in a sump pump can wear out or malfunction over the years.
How can you ensure that your home is protected in the event of a pump failure? The answer is to have a battery backup pump and secondary sump pump ready to go in the case of an emergency.
Looking for a backup pump? At Mission Home Services, we’re proud to provide and install sump pump systems that are designed to solve your basement water problems. We offer services to local homes in Maryland, including in Frederick, Walkersville, Westminster, and more.
There are a variety of reasons that a pump may fail, but one of the most common is a loss of power. Tripped circuits, power outages – we’ve even seen many cases where a pump was unplugged by someone who needed to use the outlet, who then forgot to plug the sump back in. In a few unfortunate situations, this mistake has resulted in excessive water damage.
The best way to avoid a loss of pump functionality in the event of a power outage? A Basement Systems UltraSump® Battery Backup System (installed by Mission Home Services) can help to ensure lasting reliability. This system is crafted to keep your sump pump running efficiently and effectively.
The UltraSump® system pumps out more than 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery – an amount of water that could fill a small swimming pool! And, in order to alert you to power failure, the UltraSump® sounds an alarm when it runs and silences when the pump cycles off.
A battery-powered backup is a great step toward full waterproofing protection. But a secondary pump is another good step – it can offset your primary sump pump in the event of heavy rain or other extreme incidents without draining (or relying on) a battery.
Here’s a quick rundown of how sump pump systems provide redundancy to keep your home dry.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”
“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”
“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
