We have been installing them for a few years, they are a whole lot better than the battery powered ones, and alot cheaper. As long as you have at least 20 psi water pressure they will work just fine. For every gallon used it will pump 2 gallons. Go to www.libertypumps.com

Don't need a sump pump. My wife sells them tho. Problem is if town is without power for you to use a regular one then the town will be without power to refill the water tower and if everybody that needed a pump would have them they would be draining the water tower with no water left for fire fighting or other nessary uses and then also the sewage system they are plumbed into would not be able to operate because of no power and would have to dump untreated sewage. A lot of places would not be allowed to have them dump into the roof drain. If you are out in the country and have a spring that would provide the needed constant supply of water for them to operate and then you could dump on top of ground that would be the only good place for them.

I would that most city pumps would have back up generators.

I am sure they need a lot more pressure than most springs provide.

They are probably an eductor type, I have used them to empty hot tub. It takes a lot more water than they pump, work off vacuum like a carburetor venturi.

Like others said,towns have gen.backups.Plumbing supply houses say they sell 20-30 to 1 of those vs.electric ones.But you need a outside water supply to run one.
