Since the system uses electrically operated vacuum pumps, what happens if power fails?

A: Most facilities add the Vac Center to their standby power generating system. In fact, Acorn Vac offers a number of control features and hardware options to accommodate the unique needs of standby generator power sources. If the facility does not have a generator, or chooses not to add the Vac Center to the standby power
source, the drainage system is simply not available until normal power is restored.
