A great use for an EGO 56 volt battery would be to supply back up power to a sump pump. In this way you would be using your battery all of the time and still be able to use it for your tools when you need them

A few weeks ago I had to rent a generator to power our fridge and freezer during a power outage, though I have lots of Ego batteries sitting in the garage.

One of the downsides of a battery driven sump pump is if you have a constant flow your battery will be drained rather quickly...unless you are checking it, you could be in for a nasty surprise...Here is an outfit who have thought out the problem...You can even check on your system while you are away from home...:)

With recent heavy rain in my area I was thinking would be nice to have an EGO powered back-up sump pump. Many of the lead-acid 12V batteries are rated around 65 A-Hr so a 7.5 A-Hr is not too far off.

It would be nice to have cordless water pumps for the Pro and the homeowner. No more noise from those loud gas water pumps.
