Combination Primary and Backup Pump Systems From B&W Plumbing and Heating

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013


With the recent thaw and rains in Central Indiana your sump pump is probably working overtime.  Is it keeping up with the amount or water that is coming?  Every time a storm knocks the power out to you home are you hoping it will come on as quick as possible so your basement doesn’t flood?  Have B&W Plumbing and Heating install piece of mind with a Combonation Sump Pump system.


The new PHCC Pro Series, “Pair of Pumps” combination systems, couples an energy efficient primary sump pump and battery backup sump pump into one compact system. The primary pump operates off AC power. If the power is interrupted, or more water is coming into the sump than the AC pump can handle, the backup sump pump will begin pumping automatically.


The combination systems also contain unique monitoring features that warns the homeowner if the power goes out, battery fluid is low, backup pump was activated, or if the battery is discharged, defective, or battery terminals need cleaning. In addition the PS-C33 pump controller can send an alarm signal to a home security system or auto dialer.



  • Energy efficient permanent split capacitor (PSC) motor
  • Continuous duty rated
  • Dual float switches on primary and backup pumps
  • Automatically switches to battery power when AC fails
  • Backup pump will assist primary pump if excessive amounts of water are entering the sump
  • Detects irregularities, sounds an alarm, and pinpoints problems and solutions on control panel
  • Maintains and recharges battery automatically
  • Alarm can be silenced during a power outage
  • Output terminals for connection to a security system or auto-dialer (PS-C33 only)
  • Can accommodate two (2) B2200 batteries for 16 hours of continuous pumping (PS-C33 only)
  • 3-year warranty
  • Water cooled (no oil to leak)

Why Would I Need A Battery Backup Sump Pump System?

Monday, April 6th, 2009


Whether your basement is finished or if you use it for storage, there are several thousand dollars invested in your basement.  The smartest thing to do is to protect yourself with a battery backup sump pump system.  Battery backup sump pumps give you the peace of mind knowing that you are protected during a power outage or a heavy rainstorm.


Have you ever wondered…..

  What happens when there is a power outage?

  -A battery backup sump pump system uses a secondary power source to pump the water out when there is no power to the main pump.


  What happens if debris clogs the main pump or the main pump fails due to a mechanical problem?

  -A battery backup sump pump system will provide a secondary pump if the primary fails.


  What happens if the float switch on the main pump fails or becomes stuck?

  -A battery backup sump pump system uses a secondary float switch to activate the backup pump.


The truth is, if you have a basement, you can’t afford not to have a battery backup sump pump.  Insurance companies have changed/redefined what is covered in the event of a flooded basement.  Call your agent BEFORE your basement floods to find out what your coverage is.

Even if you are covered, the cleanup following a flood is daunting.
