Will this system work for a house with a well and a whole house generator?
Richard H.

Answer
There are basically two types of backup sump pump systems. Battery powered and water powered backup systems. Depending on the water table in your area and the potential for flooding, you could go with a BATTERY BACKUP SUMP PUMP SYSTEM or a WATER POWERED BACKUP SYSTEM. If your water removal needs are below average, you could elect to go with a low GPH rated battery backup sump pump or water powered back up. Please note that water powered systems will only work with a minimum of 20-40 PSI. They will not work if you draw your water from a well.

The typical water powered system would provide between 300-1000GPH of pumping capacity. You should also check with your local municipality to make sure that they are allowed as some municipalities have outlawed them as they do waste water in a sense. If you're in a little higher water table and the flooding potential is a bit higher, you may want to consider a battery backup system rated at between 1000-2300GPH. If the flooding potential and water table are very high, you might look at the systems rated at 2400GPM and higher. That said, since you have a whole house generator, your best option may be a 2nd 120V pump. If room allows in your basin, adding a secondary “primary” pump with the float set at a higher level so that it activates when and only when your primary pump is overworked and cannot handle the incoming water surge.

If this scenario fits your needs best, you MUST install a separate discharge pipe for each pump or increase your current discharge pipe to a 2-1/2" - 3" to handle the capacity in the event that both pumps operate at the same time. Otherwise, you will not see any significant increase in pumping capacity when both pumps operate together. If, on the other hand, your current pump is constantly having difficulty keeping up, you should then consider increasing to a larger horsepower pump and then, possibly the secondary “primary” for those rare major storms. Upsizing just for the sake of having the most “power” possible may only result in a shortened pump life due to more frequent cycling during the “normal” times. Please note that these systems are designed strictly as an added pump to provide backup to your main or primary sump pump.
