sump pump back up
by Ed Devine
I'm trying to determine a method of backing up my sump pump in case I lose power. I read your book and I’m still a little confused. I have a 1/3hp, 6 amp sump pump, guess that is 1000+ watt. I see where harbor freight has a rather inexpensive starter package solar panels that is rated at 75 watts. I'm wondering if I can use this and come up with a combination of batteries that will always be charged to run my sump pump? If so how many batteries and what size would they be?
