Sump Pump Battery Back Up Recommendations?

We just re-finished our basement and we have a semi new sump pump already. Are there alternatives to replacing our sump pump? Its pretty new so I hesitate to just throw it out and replace it with a sump with battery back up. We also have a gas generator we keep in the garage. So I am really looking for another alternative that will keep the sump going for 1 to 2 hours to give us enough time to switch over to the generator in the event of a power failure. I have seen some UPS systems online but not sure if they are viable for a sump. Any advise and recommendations would be great.

I've used many 'Basement Watch Dog' battery pumps over the years with good results---a nice system at a reasonable price---
