One of the 25 highest earning towns in the US as listed by Money magazine, Wheaton is a city and county seat of DuPage County in Illinois. Just 25 miles west of Chicago, the city experiences the same extreme weather of Chicago, with scorching summers and freezing winters, as well as thunderstorms during spring and summer.
This seesaw weather is one of the main factors that cause basement flooding and other moisture problems, which Wheaton residents try to control primarily with the use of sump pumps.
A sump pump is basically an appliance that pumps water from the basement and pushes it out and away from the home. Highly effective, the only problem with sump pumps is that they can sometimes fail either from a natural mechanical breakdown, or from lack of power due to a power outage.
Solutions to Broken Sump Pumps
While you can have your sump pump checked out to ensure its running like it should, you can’t control if something goes wrong, or if power gets cut in the middle of a storm, and this is why a battery backup sump pump needs to be installed.
A battery backup sump pump will ensure your basement stays free of water even if there’s no power, or if the main pump breaks down. It is a small investment to ensure you don’t have to pay a small fortune in potential damages.

Benefits to Wheaton Homeowners
Having a backup to your main pump will give you peace of mind in knowing that your basement is safe from floods no matter how harsh the weather is. Even if your main pump is perfectly working, you don’t have to worry about what will happen if it encounters a freak problem or power outage.
