The Basement Watchdog Emergency Battery Backup Sump Pump System monitors the levels of the fluid on the battery to help with maintenance on the system. The size of it allows it to be put into narrow sump pump areas. The system is made to automatically start pumping when the power goes out, so there is no need to have to turn it on manually.

The Basement Watchdog .33 Horsepower Plastic Battery Powers Sump Pump needs to be turned on if the power goes out, but has a dual float switch for protection. If the pump has a problem it will sound an alarm and give off a warning light. It also describes what to do to make the maintenance on the device simple. It pumps more water then the Emergency system. The Emergency system pumps 1,000 gallons per hour where the .33 horsepower version pumps 1730 gallons per hour.

The Zoeller 508 Aquanot Battery Backup Sump Pump System out-pumps the other models, as shown on the Sump Pumps Direct site. The 508 pumps 1800 GPH. This one does share the auto start feature of the Emergency system and the alarm system of the Basement Watchdog .33 Horsepower Plastic Battery Powers Sump Pump.
