Looking down the road, if and when the pump fails / wears out, would I be able to replace it or do I need to replace the entire unit? Hence, would I be able to use the power inverter or controller with other pumps? Thanks.

Answer
These battery backup systems, like any other system are designed to work with their specific components only. If any one of them should fail, you could contact the MANUFACTURER and they would assist you in replacing the specific component.

Is the Simer A5500 compatable with AGM batteries?
Ed

Answer
Maintenance-free AGM (sealed) batteries require a higher voltage and they may
never reach full charge.
Any 130 ampere-hour maximum battery in the following sizes are recommended:
Size 24M Marine Deep Cycle Battery
or a

Do I need to do an excavation to install a back up sump pump or does it somehow tie into the main sump pump?
Jennifer

Answer
As long as your current sump basin is large enough, you should have no problem installing it. A normal basin is 18" wide by 24" deep however this pump can be installed in basins with a minimum diameter of 13 1/2". Typically, the backup pump can be mounted either alongside or above the primary pump.

In a normal standby backup situation (with the primary pump operating as it should) what lights should be on on the Simer A5500. My unit currently has the top red and the bottom green lights on. What's normal and what does this indicate?

Answer
The LED Panel operation is listed below.

Red “AC Power Status” LED - AC power is present

Yellow (bicolor) LED on continuously - Prequalification test is complete
and charging is in process

Yellow “Charging” LED flashing on and off quickly - Equalization
charge stage

Green (bicolor) LED is on - Battery is being maintained at full
charge

Bicolor LED flashing yellow/green alternatively - See Error

how do you no when the battery is bad i have a simer 5000 that came with the home how do i test the pump when power is out to see if pump is working
Bill

Answer
You can always unplug your primary pump and then add water to your basin to the point that it should trip your backup pump to start. If the backup pump does not start, you should check all connections and your battery. If your battery is not sealed and contains battery acid, check to make sure the acid in each cell is to the full line. If they are low, add distilled water to bring the levels up. If that doesn't do the trick, you should get your battery checked as it may need to be replaced. Most battery suppliers and auto parts stores that sell batteries can check them at a nominal cost. If the battery tests fine, then your pump or control box will need replacing and you should contact the pump manufacturer. When you are finished checking your backup pump operation, DO NOT FORGET TO PLUG YOUR PRIMARY PUMP BACK IN TO YOUR 120 VOLT OUTLET.
