    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plan on buying new battery every 3 - 4 years System require the use of their battery which isn't maintenance free. The batteries are not cheap and filling them with distilled water twice a year gets old quick. I tried to use a maintenance free battery but the circuitry on the controller detected the difference and triggered the battery warning alarm on it. I'm not an electrical person but I think this is by design so you have to buy their expensive batteries.

    Is it necessary to drill hole in discharge line to prevent air locks.  Never had to do it with existing ac sump pump

    Asked by: Romeobud
    Yes it is. I also HAD to do this my existing AC sump pump. Maybe it depends on the sump pump type.....but I would definitely do what they say.

    Hi. Does this unit include the battery? No mention that I can see if it is included or not. Thanks in advance.

    Asked by: Charles
    Hi, I bought the unit only to discover that the unit did not include a battery. I went to the Depot store & bought the battery separately for $200. To use any other battery would void any claim you might make if the unit fails. Easy Instal & seems to work well,,,cost was about $350-$400 all in

    Is it easy to install this product or should I hire a plumber? Also, how close does the battery pack have to be to the actual pump? It looks like a large battery and I want to ensure I have the proper space.

    Asked by: Lind
    You can read through the installation manual which will describe all the installation methods in detail and decide whether or not this is something you feel comfortable doing yourself. If you wanted to read through the manual ahead of time you can find it on our website at www.basementwatchdog.com under the manuals section. The battery would need to be within 10 feet of the sump pump itself. For more information I would recommend contacting our service team at 800-991-0466 option 3.

    Is it necessary to keep battery charger "ON" all the time? I am concerned about overcharging.

    Asked by: nairam1
    The slide switch on that control panel is for the audible alarm feature on that system. That switch should be set to “ON” during normal standby conditions. The battery charger should be plugged in at all times, since the system is designed to maintain a fully charged battery. It will not overcharge it. For more information, contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am – 5pm CT Monday through Friday.

    I'd like to modify this pump for a more remote use. Does anybody know if I'd be able to put an end on it to plug into a vehicle's lighter socket? I'm not an electrical wiz obviously.

    Asked by: thomcat
    This system will not operate off of a vehicle’s lighter socket. It is designed for basement sump applications and requires the use of a 12V, deep-cycle battery. This is different from an automotive battery. For more information, please contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am – 5pm CT Monday through Friday.

    I wish to purchase the sump pump mod. BWE Sku 1000802950. What else do I need to go with this? They are all out of the drain kits at the store.

    Asked by: Ellen
    This system comes with a pump, control panel (with float switch, AC adapter and battery cables) and a battery box. You will need to supply a battery (recommend BW27-AGM battery), a 1 1/2 inch rigid PVC pipe and fittings, PVC cement and primer, and a surge protector rated at 1500 joules or more is recommended. You will also need and a union with hose clamps, or a "Y" connector with 2 check valves, depending on which installation method you use. For more information, please contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am - 5pm CT Monday through Friday.
