Power outage preparation


New member
Hey guys so I have a question. I work long hours and in case of a power outage what are you running as a power reserve. In case my power goes out and I'm not able to get home for a few hours. I would like something to run my heater and return pump for atleast 5 to 10 hours. I know there are power strips with reserves but I herd they only last about 10 minutes. .. is there anything out there that can run a few things longer? What do you guys use?

I run 2 pumps on separate 1500VA 900W UPS. When the power goes out, one pump will run 2 hours, the other about 4. When the UPS run out, I have a Honda portable generator.

Eventually, I'd like to get a home battery backup system charged by my PV.
