Solar Powered Backup Sump Pump System

In this video I show how I put together a backup system for my sump pump, in case the power goes out or the main pump fails. With a solar panel, a charge controller, and a battery, I can make sure that my basement won’t flood if there is a power outage when I’m out of town.

Here are the main components I bought:
