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 replaced the one in our home (though I am technically Handy…not handy though ;) ) but it was a smaller unit that was rather easy to remove.

You’re hired!
