To fix this all you have to do is drill a 1/16th inch whole rite below the water line in your main tank so when the powergoes out,the the whole will break that suction therfore leaving your floors dry.
I think he forgot the hole to, BUT! When the power comes back on the siphon does not start right up so if your not home and the power goes out and then comes back on, the sump would flood the main tank. Its happened to me 3x so I went out and bought a $200 back up the most it last is up to 52 hrs. It also depends on what you have it plugged into.
