Your home’s sump pump is your first line of defense against encroaching water. Because your main sump pump is usually powered by electricity, when the power goes out, the pump stops removing water from your home. That’s why it’s smart to install a back-up sump pump. And the better choice for a back-up sump pump is a water-powered sump pump.
Why is that? Even under the heaviest rainfall and worst storm conditions, a water-powered sump pump is a solid defense against flood damage in your home. Using water pressure produced by your home’s incoming water supply lines to pump out water in the sump pit, a water-powered sump pump requires no battery, no electrical power and relies on no moving parts. These pumps are compatible with ¾-inch municipal water supply lines and can remove as much as 1,324 gallons of water per hour when operational.
As long as your home is still receiving water supplied by your municipality or well, the water-powered sump pump will operate. source: angieslist.com
