Combination Pump and Backup Systems Offer Convenience, Consistent Quality, and Cost Efficiency

Packaged, preassembled, or combination sump pump and backup systems are cost-efficient plus offer convenience through ease of installation and the consistent quality needed to be prepared in the event of a system failure.

A packaged system (primary pump, backup pump, controller, valves, sensors, inverters, etc.) provides everything needed for the application. It’s a streamlined solution ensuring that all components work smoothly together and eliminates extra trips to the shop or supply house.

Top Selling JMI Back Up System

The JMI pre-assembled options combine your preferred primary pump with our leading back-up system - Alpha. It includes the 12V DC submersible pump, switch, battery charger, and battery box and pumps up to 40 GPM @10 ft.

The advanced controller within the package automatically tests the system once a week, has a built-in high-water alarm, and will sound an alarm whenever a problem is detected. Premounted sensors give you consistent water level settings. Solid state, with no moving parts to fail, the top sensor will operate the pump and sound the alarm simultaneously. Sensors mount directly to the discharge pipe and are rated for 5 million cycles.

An optional but valuable component is the Flood ProText Wi-Fi Module, which allows the unit to send an emergency text to more than one contact whenever there is any reason alarm. It is important to note that a notification will be received not only when the backup is pumping, but also when the battery starts to get low, and when it detects other issues.

In addition, JMI can private label the package to help promote your business and brand.  And by the way – more important than everything above – you are providing peace of mind!
