Is it possible to install a free standing battery/device outside a sump to be activated whenever there is a power failure? In essence, what I want to do is use my existing sump pumps in my sump and connect its power cord to a marine-type battery/circuitry device and then connect a cord from the battery device to household AC current. So when the power fails, the battery will take over. At all other times the AC current will power the pump. I do not want to go to the expense of another sump pump since my sump currently has two installed one on top of the other. Further, I am not interested in installing a "water line" method for this purpose. Is there such a battery backup device/system available on the market? I've noticed inside commercial buildings a similar setup for emergency lighting whenever there is a power failure. Some computer systems are also backed up this way. Can anyone help?
