Good day! I was wondering if a dedicated line of 15 amps would be sufficient to start up and run both pumps on the Triple Safe (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_waterproofing/waterproofing_products/sump_pump/triplesafe_sump_pump.php) system? What watts do they each draw? Thanx in advance. Scott

Scott,

The primary 1/3 HP pump draws 8 amps, the second 1/2 HP pump draws 9.4 amps, and the battery charger for the UltraSump (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_waterproofing/waterproofing_products/sump_pump/battery_backup_sump_pump.php) battery backup (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_waterproofing/waterproofing_products/sump_pump/battery_backup_sump_pump.php) sump pump draws 3 amps. We recommend two outlets on different circuits, so if one breaker trips, you still have an operating pump.
