Fish can start to die within an hour if their water gets low in oxygen. You must have a backup system to avoid this happening if the power goes out!
This Backup KIT will set you up to protect your fish, with our electrical backup switch plus the backup pump and some hose and fittings to install it in your fish tank.
Electrical switch - made by us
Pump - Rule model 25DA bilge pump
All you need to add is the battery to run the pump! A 12 V car battery works well. Just remember to keep it charged.
When properly connected, the electrical switch will activate the pump if the mains power goes out. How? When the power is on, the switch breaks the connection between the battery and the pump, so there's nothing to make the pump run. When the power goes out, the switch opens the link between the battery and pump. The pump starts running and your fish start getting emergency aeration! Vital!
An easy, set-and-forget system to protect your fish. Don't risk their lives. Install a backup system today!
Note - this backup switch can actually start more than one pump (when connected correctly). This kit includes only one pump but you can order additional pumps separately.
