Don’t Get Caught Thinking that Having a Sump Pump is the Entire Answer.

Maybe you have a sump pump in your Elgin area home and you believe that is all you need to prevent flooding. Do you have a battery backup as well? There are stories of failed power during a storm in our area, and if THAT happens a sump pump may not be good enough. What a tragedy that would be for your belongings.

It’s simple really, a battery backup sump pump does the job of a sump pump when there is no power to operate the primary unit. It is not used on its own. It is responsible for draining when there is no power available. What peace of mind THAT is!

Tom’s Plumbing, serving the greater Elgin area wants you to have supreme confidence this year when the ice melts and the rains come. The plumbing professionals at Tom’s Plumbing will install a fool-proof sump pump with a “no maintenance” backup battery system. Before it’s too late, call Tom’s Plumbing for an appointment at (847) 697-6444. Be it maintenance or emergency, count on the pros at
