Re: Sump pump w/ battery backup

I'd definitely test that battery/inverter system with the pump to at least make sure the motor inrush won't kick the inverter off line.

Very good point--in fact I do know that my particular setup works because I tested it when it was new, though I only tested with a single pump starting, so might not be a bad idea to only plug one of my pumps in just in case.

Larger inverter is certainly better too. I bought this one to double running a table saw, it's 1500W continuous and I think 2500W continuous.
