I'm new to this forum but it looks like the right place for generator answers!

After having my basement flooded a couple of times I figure its time I got a backup generator for my sump pump :eek:!

It is a 1/2HP pump rated 5.5A at 115V (630W). The Honda EU2000i has gotten some great reviews but I wonder if it can handle the startup power surge. My understanding (correct or otherwise) is that electric motors can have turn on surges 3 or 4 times the rated power. That might rule out using the EU2000i :confused:?

Comments? Suggestions?

Thank you.
