In response to Re: sump pump backup--battery or water?
The only water powered units I have heard of are aspirator units. If you are in a flooded condition, the last thing you would need is more water. Stay with the battery unit.

: Can someone please help me? We are building a house in the midwest, and we had specified a battery back-up. The contractor informed us today that he has heard that the water powered sump pump back-ups are better than battery, although he does not have personal knowledge of them.

: I am now frantically trying to learn about the pros and cons of both types of back ups. If anyone has experience with one or both types of these back-up systems,I would really appreciate hearing from you. Any thoughts, suggestions, etc., would be most welcome.
