Best Back-Up System For Sump Pump

We've been out of electric for 8.5 hours today and this could have happened when we were away from home for a week and we would not have been here to take care of it.

My question is what is the best back-up system on the market today for people that live in a city?

Who makes the very best system? That is quality , workmanship, and warranty?

When someone goes away from home it good to know that you have peace of mind that you don't have worries about you sump pump going bad or electric go out and coming home to a flooded basement.

So I am asking you what is the most dependable back-up system on the market today.

I like Zoeller products and here is a system I would suggest.

Zoeller Pump 507-0008 - Pro Pak 53

There others out there, but locally zoeller is pretty common

If it's that important to have to have a pump and the basements leaking that bad I'd be spending my time and money figuring out how the waters getting in from the outside and fixing that.
Working gutters, regrading, adding french drains, making sure there's no mulch piled up againt the foundation.
