Sump Pump
Basement water problems can be caused by a multitude of issues ranging from high ground-water tables to poor or clogged exterior drainage systems. When these problems arise, it is common to have a sump pump and pit installed in a home or facility to remove water as it accumulates. However, pump motors can burn out and pump triggers can stick. How do you know if there is an issue with your pump before it’s to late?

Monnit provides a cost effective way to monitor the water level in a sump pit as well as sump pump operation. By using a Monnit WIT wireless water sensor at the sump pit, you can place the sensor contacts in the pit to create a forewarning system. If the water reaches this level you can be immediately notified via email, text message or phone call.

You can also monitor the pump for activity. By placing a Monnit WIT wireless activity sensor on the pump tubing, it can sense vibration from the pump motor. This allows you track how often the pump is turning on to remove water and can work in conjuction with the water sensor to alert you if water reaches a certain level and the pump has not turned on. Now you can know if there is an issue with the pump motor or trigger before any water damage is caused. There are no wires to worry about, and the installation process is amazingly simple. « View More Information.

Enjoy peace of mind and stop worrying about the potential damage of a faulty sump pump.
