I think it cost about $200, and we installed it ourselves. Bought it at Home Depot.
Power was out for about 6 hours while we were away. My neighbor got at least 6 inches of water, and my basement was dry.
Lots of the cost is in the battery. I think a replacement battery costs close to $100 plus another $20 for the acid pack. Batteries have to be replaced every few years.
