Questions & Answers

Is the battery rechargable

Asked by: steve
Yes. Rechargeable. As mentioned by the company rep in another post, special note should be made of the charger included with this pump. It's a very low-powered charger. After discharge in a power outage event where the pump has been running for any significant period of time, I'd highly recommend disconnecting the battery and charging it using a conventional automotive charger.

do I need to buy a battery with this system?

do I need to buy a battery with this system?
Asked by: henry
The Basement Watchdog Emergency system is a DC system, meaning it requires a battery. The battery is not included, so you’ll have to purchase one separately. For more information, please contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am – 5pm CT Monday through Friday.

can I hook the battery and control panel unit to an existing pump

Asked by: searshandyman
The battery and control unit work together. If you try to hook them to an existing pump you will probably have a problem since there is a plug that is a specific design going from the pump to the control unit.

Emergency Battery Backup Sump Pump System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 79.

The float is extremely small, and probably will not work when it is urgently needed to do so. 2. The alarm system will do an intermittent beap all the time, which is very annoying. I only wanted an alarm system that will sound when the regular sump pump has stopped working.

The instructions were clear and concise. I failed to read one instruction, and had a minor problem. A call to Watchdog customer service had the glitch resolved in minutes. There is an actual person answering the phone. They are pleasant and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this product.

I had a previous one and a recent power surge created a problem with the existing one. So this was never a question as to what product to replace it with. Only issue was the item was out of stock at the local stores due to recent rains in the area. So I ordered it from the website and received it at home.

I bought this system three years ago and so far I have had to replace the battery every year (it fails a few days over the one year warranty period). I maintain the water level in the battery and check it every three months as directed. Do not buy.
