Wanted to take a moment to thank John and Angie for your help last weekend as I prepared for Hurricane Irene here in New Jersey. Your help in sending me the system with the overnight shipping allowed me hook up this system and get the battery back up running just before the storm hit the next day. The power did go out for 8 hours and the two battery back up system with the Eco Power Pump ran well during this time period until the power came on. It saved my basement from taking on water. Will talk to you soon. Thanks.
