Recommended battery backup?

I recently moved to a place with a lot of earthquakes and rain and I've heard there's a fair number of power outages. I want some kind of battery backup so that the air pumps will keep running. It needs to be the kind that plugs into a wall and automatically switches to battery power when the power supply is interrupted since I will more than likely not be home if the power goes out and may not even know since I'll be a few cities away. It also needs to last quite a few hours. Apparently not many months ago the power was out for days. Of course, I'll have replacement batteries on hand, but I don't want to be replacing them 10 times a day.

So far it looks like this is my best option:

Any recommendations?

Take a look at computer battery backups.. I have an APC something-or-other .. Trusted brand for sure. I only have my heater and filter plugged into the battery backup section but keep in mind how much power you’ll need and for how long you’ll need it. Good luck!
