As we head into the Spring, there has been an increased level of interest in the water powered backup sump pump, better known as Basepump. "Basepump outsells all our other products by a 10-1 margin," says Bill Bonifacio, the Company President. This is notable because it indicates a trend toward water powered pumps not really seen before just a few short years ago. In the past, whenever someone thought of a way to back up their sump pump, they immediately thought of a battery powered solution. Today, the thinking has shifted to one of these two option: 1) A generator or 2) a water powered backup sump pump.
So why is this happening? There has been an increase in awareness of water powered pumps as many of the problems associated with such pumps in the past have been solved by companies like Base Products Corp. Those issues in the past have caused people to carry a negative sense of the effectiveness of these types of pumps which has been difficult to break.
More recently, however, improvements in pumping rates as well as reliability of operation have slowly changed the negative mindset and brought much of that thinking around to more seriously consider the water powered option as a viable solution.
Now that we've discussed the reasons for this shift, the company, has begun to respond to this shift and in fact, push ahead of it. So as they increase inventory, they are also increasing staff hours. Additionally, they are seeking new outlets for their products. Whether it be a brick and mortar storefront, a plumbing contractor, an Internet e-commerce site, or a general contractor, we are always on the lookout to add to our sales force. Negotiations are currently underway to increase retail sales significantly over the next 2-5 years.
Some of the hardest hit areas of the country have been the Midwest, the Great Lakes region, and the Jersey coast, and basement flooding due to power failures and sump pump failures have been prevalent in those areas.
Since the entire country has been suffering through some of the coldest temperatures and snowiest winters on record, Base Products expects business to increase proportionately. The increased snowfall causes heavier Spring meltdown, and the extreme cold has put a strain on pipes and foundations. These conditions can cause sump pumps to run more often, which can lead to premature failures and flooded basements.
This is where backup sump pumps become even more critical to a home's infrastructure. A good backup sump pump along with a high water alarm to alert the homeowner to the problem can bring peace of mind to the homeowner as he or she leaves for work each day, or whatever.
