To be fair, replacing a sump pump is one of the easiest dyi projects out there. I bought a battery backup here.


As someone who just isn’t handy, I don’t trust myself to hook this up alone.

I still find it dubious it needs to cost $1700 but two places have quoted me that (including one who didn’t even see my setup- that’s just the flat rate that Standard Water charges). Roto rooter has same quote after fixing my pump yesterday- said they need to redo some of the work they did yesterday to properly install the liberty unit. Something about moving a pipe.

I paid more than $1700 for mine. Quite a bit more. But it was has 2 pump set at different levels. Each has 2 floats. And it comes with a battery back up system (with alarm).

I was also an emergency call which hiked the price.

Point is, if you get the Mac Daddy set up, I think you have a fair quote.
