The Aquanot® Series -- Emergency Battery Backup Pedestal Pump

Zoeller Aquanot II backup pedestal style sump pump

The Aquanot Series pumps incorporate a heavy duty 12 volt motor, at the top of a stainless steel column and shaft with a non corrosive base assembly, that is able to discharge water as fast as many primary/main pumps. The Aquanot II includes a positive contact float switch, and a pump alarm. The outlets of these pumps are 1-1/2" FIPT and with the use of a male adapter easily adaptable to PVC or ABS plastic piping.

The Aquanot II equipped with automatic electronic 28 amp charger to maintain and recharge battery.

28 amp charger uses 3.5 amp AC input with 12 volt DC output which allows the Aquanot II pump to operate as a back-up pump for an extended time in case of primary pump failure.

Zoeller offers a 3 year limited warranty that is valid only when a complete system is purchased and used for backup to a primary dewatering system. A complete system includes an Aquanot II model 585 pump and an Aquanot® battery. Batteries are not included with the Aquanot® systems and must be purchased separately.

The Basement Series -- Emergency Backup Sump Pump

The Basement Sentry I and Aquanot 508 12 volt DC pumps are sold just as the back-up pump. The primary pumps are sold separately so you can add this back up pump system to your existing sump pump. The Basement Series 12 volt DC pumps are designed for emergency backup use in clear water sump pumps when the primary AC powered pump or pumps fail to turn on. Primary pumps can fail due to power outages during storms or brownouts, or because of wiring and electrical problems, mechanical malfunction or obstructions in the pit. The 12 volt DC pump will turn on if the primary pump fails to turn on or is unable to keep up with excessive water due to rain or other conditions that can cause your basement water removal system to overload. Both the Basement Sentry I (model 507) and the Basement Aquanot 508 (model 508) have the same basic functions. The only difference is the size and performance of the pump. If more than 7 hours continuous run time will be required then two or more batteries should be connected in parallel to extend the run time hours. Both the Basement Sentry I and the Aquanot 508 can be used with multiple batteries but an extra battery case with a hookup wire (P/N 007861) must be ordered separately for each additional battery to be used.

Please note: What you are purchasing here is the backup sump pump system. The main sump pumps are sold separately. Product may not look exactly as shown above.

What the Basement Sentry I and the Basement Aquanot 508 have in common:

DC CONTROLLER / Charger: Self contained 10 amp battery recharger includes battery burn out and overcharge protection. The solid state automatic control has alarms, light indicators and warning systems. Keeps the battery ready for use and recharges the battery after it's used and the AC power is restored. If the battery does not charge properly the LCD will display BATFAIL and sound an alarm buzzer. The charger is super efficient and complies with the California Battery Council standards.

LCD SCREEN: Constantly displays battery voltage and will display other helpful information about the system, such as DC pump cycles and power outages, by simply touching the scroll button.

AC Power LED LIGHTS:

  • Red = AC Power supply "on"
  • Red Blinking = AC Power supply "off"
  • Yellow = Battery "charging"
  • Green = Battery "fully charged"
  • Low Battery LED Light = Red low battery light blinks when battery is below 10.8 volts, rapidly blinks when below 8.4 volts
  • Pump Cycled LED Light = Yellow light will blink when float activated, becomes solid after 3 seconds
  • Alarm Off Light = Yellow light indicates the buzzer is silenced

ALARMS: Continuous steady buzzer sounds for "low battery". Alarm also sounds for High Water or Reverse Polarity detected.

FLOAT SWITCH: Low voltage, reliable, vertical.

BATTERY CASE: The included battery case will accommodate maximum battery dimensions of 13"L x 7-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H and fits all group size 27 marine batteries. Made from non corrosive polyethylene. Contains lock strap.

BATTERY: Not included. However, the estimated life of a fully charged (175 minute reserve capacity) battery when the pump is operating continuously is approximately 7-1/2 hours.

FITTINGS: All parts required for installation and mounting are included for each system including brackets, wall anchors, PVC fittings, and cable ties. PVC pipe must be provided by the installer.

PIT SIZE minimum requirements: 18" diameter x 24" deep.

The pumps are the only difference!

The Model 507 will pump 900 GPH (15 GPM) at 10 ft. head. Not recommended for installations over 15 ft. total dynamic head. This pump outlet has 1-1/2" PVC spigot adapter built-in to glue directly into a 1-1/2" Tee provided by the manufacturer.

The Pro Pak Series -- Pre-Assembled Emergency Backup Sump Pump System

The Pro Pak line of emergency backup sump pump systems include the Basement Aquanot 508 system (#508-0005), as well as your choice of a primary (main) sump pump. The key word here is "pre-assembled". All you need to do is put it in the sump pit, mount your control box on the wall, attach the wires to the battery, adjust the float switch height, add any additional discharge piping and plug the control box into one receptacle and the primary pump into a separate outlet. These Pro Pak systems are plumbed with 1-1/2" schedule 40 PVC pipe and are offered with two different sized Zoeller 115 Volt primary sump pumps. The only difference between these two systems is the primary pump choice that you get to make. The Pro Pak 53 comes with the Zoeller M53 .3 HP pump, and the Pro Pak 98 includes the Zoeller M98 1/2 HP pump.

The included back-up pump system is the Basement Aquanot 508 (508-0005) and includes the 12 volt DC back-up pump with internal check valve, the control box, float switch, sturdy polyethylene battery case with locking strap, and all needed mounting hardware for mounting the control box. The 12 volt back-up pump will turn on if the primary pump fails to turn on because of a power outage or if a high volume of water enters the pit and activates the back-up pump float switch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "We are interested in purchasing a Pro Pak pre-assembled system but would like to add an additional battery. What should we do?"
A.The pre-assembled systems include the Sentry I back-up system and we are sorry to say cannot be used for multiple battery applications. You would just need to purchase the Sentry II (model 510-0005) that can be used with multiple batteries, and purchase your primary pump separately. Extra battery cases are also sold separately. The installation and assembly of these systems are not as difficult as you might think.

Q. "What is an AGM battery?"
A. An AGM (absorbent glass mat) battery is a completely sealed lead acid battery that is spill proof. The battery is made with fine fiberglass or boron-silicate glass mats absorbed with electrolyte acid placed between lead plates. These types of batteries can be shipped without hazardous material restrictions. AGM batteries perform better than "wet" type batteries in cold temperatures and can recharge up to 5 times faster than the "wet" type.
