    Cool Sump Pump City Water Back-Up System

    I have a sump pump in the basement. Due to the water level in our area, after a heavy rainfall or a week of rain, the water table rises, water flows into the French Drain and then into the sump pump. Sometimes I am emptying a 40 gallon tank every 5 min. My main concern is loss of electrical power and then my problem becomes a back breaking, unending bucket parade to hand remove the water by all hands available. Recently on "This Old House" TV show there was a system described to solve the problem when the electrical power goes out, but I missed it. Can someone give me more details on the show and how I can install the system?

    Battery back-up pumps are also readily available at you neighborhood home center.
