I was talking to an electrician today about battery back up sump pump in case there is a power outage.
I always recommend it to buyers. I was surprised when he said that they are not all that great because the battery back up has power only for 4 hours. I do not know if it is true and have to do further research.
I said how about having a generator for back up electricity and he said you have to be at home to turn it on.
What do people who go on vacation do ? We have had some heavy rains over the years and hurricane season is here.
I always worry when I sell a house with a finished basement . I have had two listings over the years when the sump pump failed and the buyer backed out of the contract.
When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
