Why Waterproof Your Crawl Space?

There are several ways water and moisture can find their way into the crawl space of your New Jersey home. One of the most common sources of crawl space moisture is leaking pipes or improperly routed gutters. But it's not just leaking water that can be problematic. Any moisture can lead to disaster! From humidity to evaporation to even wet dirt, here are some of the methods moisture may find its way into your crawl space:

  • Broken, misrouted, or undersized rain gutters
  • Leaky plumbing
  • Leaky windows or vents
  • Humidity, leading to condensation
  • Improper yard drainage
  • Melted snow or rainwater
  • Moisture in the dirt

But why does crawl space water and moisture matter? Pooled water and moist air in your crawl space inevitably cause rot in the wood joists and supports of the floor above the crawl space, leading to their eventual collapse. In addition, high humidity in the crawl space leads to mold, which can produce spores that irritate and even cause allergies for homeowners. That is why it's so important to properly waterproof your crawl space, including installing a battery backup sump pump.

Do You Need a Crawl Space Battery Backup Sump Pump?

To put it simply, yes! Everyone with a crawl space should install a battery backup pump as part of their waterproofing plan. While your primary sump pump is wired directly to your home's electrical system, a battery backup pump is just that — it runs on battery. So if a power outage ever causes your primary pump to stop working, you can have the peace of mind that your battery backup pump is still keeping your crawl space safe and dry.

A battery backup pump offer many benefits, but not every battery backup sump pump is built equally. Blue Umbrella only installs the highest quality sump pumps to protect your New Jersey home.

Zoeller & Blue Angel by Wayne Crawl Space Battery Backup Sump Pumps

There are two sump pump brands Blue Umbrella proudly stands by: Zoeller and Blue Angel by Wayne. Zoeller is one of the industry's most reliable choices and enough for most New Jersey homeowners. Blue Angel offers additional protection and is the dependable, unparalleled backup sump pump for severe crawl space conditions. Which option is best for your crawl space depends on the water issues you face.

Since every home and building is unique, we provide free crawl space inspections to create customized waterproofing plans. These customized plans include our recommendation of a backup sump pump most appropriate for your home.

Zoeller Backup Sump Pumps

Zoeller sump pumps are reliable, trusted products installed in homes and buildings not only in New Jersey but across the entire United States. Zoeller pumps are made of corrosion-resistant cast iron and powder coated in an epoxy finish, making them water and dirt-resistant, ensuring dependable functionality. Our preferred model is the  Zoeller Crawl Space Sentry 507 Battery Backup Pump

This pump can provide up to 7 ½ hours of continuous pumping with a fully charged battery. In addition, each pump comes equipped with an alarm to notify you if the primary pump has failed, if there is damage to the backup or if there has been a power circuit trip. In the case of a power outage, your battery backup pump engages automatically. 

Blue Angel by Wayne Backup Sump Pumps

Blue Angel sumps pumps are top of line units with unmatched capabilities. These cast-iron casted pumps are professional grade, submersible, and capable of pumping 70 gallons per minute — all with quiet performance.

Blue Umbrella installs the Blue Angel F12V battery backup sump pump to support your primary crawl space sump pump. The F12V will provide maximum reliability and comes with a protective battery case, an audible alarm, and a 3-year warranty. So if you have severe crawl space water issues or want to go the extra mile, Blue Angel by Wayne is the backup sump pump for you.

How Much Does a Crawl Space Battery Backup Sump Pump Cost?

The price of battery backup sump pump installation in your crawl space will depend primarily on the size of your crawl space in your New Jersey home and the severity of the water issues. With larger crawl spaces or more intense water problems, we may recommend installing a higher-capacity sump pump or even two sump pumps on opposite ends of the crawl space. 

While a higher-capacity sump pump or second pump costs more upfront, avoiding the expensive costs of water damage repair makes the better pump, the safer, lower-cost option. Our crawl space experts will sit with you to help you choose the right backup sump pump and provide a complete installation quote.
