Tim was great to work with. Fixed drain issue in my basement and made sure that everything was working properly and I was satisfied. I’d give him 10 stars if I could. Having Drain issues, just call Tim.

I am thrilled with the work that Tim did for us! And I am so grateful that we found him. He is amazingly skilled at what he does! We had a sewer problem (backing up, despite being rodded twice). We had an estimate from another company when I contacted Drains Inc and talked to Tim. He was there the next day, investigating and determining the actual problem. Within a week, the work was done, and done so skillfully by Tim and Pedro. I can't believe how much we lucked out in finding Drains Inc. We are thrilled and very grateful.

A range of backup pumps
Depending on the size of the battery and the height of the sump pumps discharge point, some models can pump up to 6 or more hours. Most battery backup pumps are not as powerful as a standard sump pump that operates on 110 volts of current. A standard 110 volt 1/3 horsepower sump pump can almost always discharge about 35 gallons of water per minute assuming the discharge point is no more than 10 feet above the pump. Depending on the model we install a battery backup model that will pump up to 20 gallons per minute with no more than 10-foot discharge height. Remember that the backup pumps are just a backup. The purpose of the sump pump is to get you through the emergency! Call Drains Inc at (847)485-0031 for your FREE estimate and more information about our backup battery services for your sump pump system.
Battery services that help you through the emergency Make sure that your home is protected with a reliable battery backup system from the professionals at Drains Inc we offer two types of battery backup systems for our customers. The first is a battery system to run your primary sump pump when you don’t need a secondary pump. Our battery system can run for up to two days depending on how much it runs, the size of the sump pump, and the height of discharge. Countless basements have flooded due to a power outage caused by a severe rainstorm, causing extensive and irreplaceable damages to the homeowner’s valuables or to their finished basements. Our second type is a battery backup sump pump can be installed in the same pump pit as the primary pump. Some battery backup pumps will tell you the status of the power supply. Some models will provide a continuous steady beep if the battery is getting low. If the battery has a partial charge, it will produce a chirp similar to that of a smoke detector with a low battery.
