    Hi everyone,

    So last night power was out for a couple hours. Hardly slept worrying about my livestock. Luckily no losses.

    I was wandering if anyone uses ups systems to run a pump or two during times like these? How does it work?

    Thanks

    I had 2x1500W Modified sine wave inverters that I ran.
    One on each tank until a power spike took then both out about 2 weeks ago....
