      The powerful Basement Watchdog Big Dog Computer-Controlled AC/DC Battery Backup Sump Pump System pumps 3,500 GPH at 0 ft. of lift or 2,200 GPH at 10 ft. of lift. This convenient pump fits next to the main AC pump and automatically begins pumping during power outages when the main pump fails or when water flow exceeds the capacity of the main pump. This reliable sump pump system features a 20 Amp charger that recharges the battery quickly and runs the pump with AC current instead of the battery if the power is on.

      EVERYONE READING THIS.... make sure you UNDERSTAND THAT THIS DOES NOT COME WITH A BATTERY OR ACID. I wish Glentronics would simply package the battery with this. Its sort of dumb.... you need a battery since the system will not work w/o it. Yet they sell it seperate. I ended up using a marine battery from my boat until I got time again to go to home depot to pickup the Glentronics / Watchdog battery. (Another $100). This is a great system. I have put it in unfortunately after the fact. Will the lesser models work.... yeah I imagine they would but when I saw the water pouring in over the sump pump cover after the power went out, it was scary to see how much water was coming in. Within 2 - 5 minutes, our basement (approx 2000+/- sq ft) was covered in about 2" of water. Soooo that being the case, I opted for the most GPH pump. I was thinking about putting in a generator but decided on this for the interim. This unit also gives you more information feedback than the other 2 lesser models. It also tells you how much more battery life is left.
