Grand Island, NY, United States, 2007/05/17 - The new BasementSaver HP-Series (High Pressure) line of water powered backup sump pumps extend safe emergency pumping operation up to 150 psi with ‘approved’ backflow prevention to protect municipal water supplies.
Following the considerable growth of finished basements containing expensive home theaters, gym equipment, shop tools, etc., the demand for highly reliable backup sump pumps has increased significantly. At the same time, city planners and town water departments have become increasingly concerned about protecting North America’s municipal water supplies from backflow of contaminated water.
Following the highly regarded line of WP-Series backup sump pumps, Basementsaver.com have announced the new HP (High Pressure) series of 3 water powered backup sump pumps. These premium units offer the same ultra-efficient operation as the highly popular WP-Series pumps, but also provide ‘approved’ backflow protection for city water at pressures up to 150 psi.
Tim Harnois, Master Plumber and owner of +Aquamedic explained:
“WP-Series water powered backup sump pumps are generally preferred over battery backup sump pumps in most basement protection applications. This is primarily due to the fact that these water powered units are far more reliable, having no moving parts to break and having no battery or charger to maintain. Additionally, WP water powered backup pumps can run continuously as long as city water is available, whereas battery powered systems can only pump until the battery discharges.
The new Basementsaver HP backup sump pumps operate just as reliably and efficiently as established WP-Series units, removing up to 2 gallons of basement sump water for every gallon of city water used. However, HP-Series pumps extend the range of safe operation up to 150 psi, compared to about 100 psi for WP models. This is especially important for application in the many municipalities where water pressure often exceeds 85 psi. Previously, the only option in such cases was to install expensive (and sometimes unreliable) pressure reducing valves, or to use a battery powered backup sump pump.
HP-Series water powered backup pumps also offer ‘approved’ backflow prevention over the entire operating range up to 150 psi. Following lessons learned with WP-Series pumps, every HP backup sump pump comes with easy to follow fully illustrated installation instructions, enabling homeowners with only moderate DIY capability to save hundreds of dollars by installing their own emergency basement flood protection.”
The Basementsaver HP backup sump pump line now sets a new benchmark for other pump manufacturers to follow. These units enable even wider use of ultra-reliable Basementsaver water powered backup pump technology - as many basements in areas with higher water pressure, or where ‘approved’ backflow prevention is mandatory, can now be protected without recourse to less reliable battery backup pump technology.
