WP2 / HB1000 Backup Pump Operation
When water in your basement sump rises above the normal control range provided by your primary sump pump, your backup pump automatically starts pumping until the sump water is reduced sufficiently to lower it’s float below the trigger level:
Excess rising water in your basement sump lifts the backup pump Float
The backup pump float activates a Hydraulic Valve on the pump unit that allows city water to run through the Ejector.
Each gallon of city water flow through the backup pump ejector creates sufficient suction to pull 2 gallons of water from your sump up the suction tube.
A Check Valve on the pump body prevents water from returning back down into your sump.
The 2 gallons of sump water mix with the 1 gallon of city water as they discharge together out of the backup pump ejector into the discharge pipe and out of your basement.
Basementsaver WP2 & Basepump HB1000 Pump Model Comparison
The Basementsaver WP2 and the Basepump HB1000 pump units are both assembled with identical components, on exactly the same production line, in Buffalo, NY. Each pump is available with 4 model variants:
The Basementsaver WP2 / Basepump HB1000 is the standard 1,400gph backup pump model, suitable for application in large residential basements, or residential basements with higher sump flow rates.
The Basementsaver WP2-PRO / Basepump HB1000-PRO comes with Additional 3/4″ Fittings including a brass ball valve to open/shut-off the water supply, an integrated brass Dual Check Valve (DCV, meeting ASSE 1012, CSA 64.3 backflow prevention requirements) to satisfy most local plumbing department codes, and brass easy-fit push connectors to dramatically simplify water supply line installation.
The Basementsaver WP2-PRO-V / Basepump HB1000-PRO-V comes with Additional 3/4″ Fittings including the same brass ball valve and brass easy-fit push connectors fitted to the PRO models, but features a Vented brass Dual Check Valve, as approved by plumbing departments in the State Of Illinois.
The Basementsaver WPA2 / Basepump HB1000-AVB comes with an integrated brass Atmospheric Vacuum Breaker (AVB, meeting ASSE 1001 and CSA 64.1.1 backflow requirements) mounted on the downstream side of the backup pump main control valve. This AVB requires that the backup pump is installed on a dedicated discharge line and cannot be used when the backup pump shares the same discharge pipe as the primary sump pump.
