With all the rain in the last month, approximately 138mm, there was a lot of flooding with lakes and rivers over flowing. Our sump pumps around the lakes were working extra hard to keep our basements dry.
Our own sump pump had tipped over from the constant vibration of running so often. Luckily we had installed the water sensor in the winter. We were on our way out of town, about 30 minutes from the house, when we received an alert on our smartphone telling us our sump pump alarm had been triggered. We were fortunate enough that the pump had just tipped over, and was an easy fix. No flooding occurred.
However, since we were on our way out for the weekend, if we had not had this sensor, we would have come home to a massive basement flood, that would have cost tens of thousands of dollars!
The best part…the water starter package is only $259.99 installed, or the water sensor is only $59.99 if you already have the hub. A huge savings compared to what could have happened. This little device certainly can provide peace of mind.
