So if your house's circuits break at least weekly perhaps skip a sump??

Would a level refugium or hang on back model drain in a similar way?

If designed right it isn't a problem. I've had power losses and siphon losses but never any overflow.

Just make a hole right before the water line of ur return pipe. This will prevent a flood, that and using directional nozzle pointing up breaking the water. The idea is to let air get in so the siphon breaks is pwr goes out.
