UPS Backup For Sump Pump

UPS is not designed for motors. It will run a computer (the fan in the computer is very low voltage and is DC current).

You could damage the sump pump motor just by plugging it into the UPS Backup.

You only solution is to purchase a battery back system for the sump pump. This system concert the battery power (DC) to AC. Go to Lowe's or Home Depot.
