Understanding the Importance of Sump Pump Alarms

Sump Pump Alarms Allow for Proactive Basement Flood Prevention

Can you determine what these all have in common?

  • Fire & Smoke Detectors
  • Alarm Clocks
  • Oven and Microwave Timers
  • Home Security Systems
  • Car Alarms

These examples, among countless other mechanisms, are meant to alert users of critical situations. Whether it’s waking you up in time to go to work, letting you know the pot roast is burning in the oven, or informing you the dog set off the home security system, these notifications simplify our lives by giving us ample time to take a course of action. Just as we have alarms in place for our other everyday tasks, having a sump pump monitoring and control device is just as crucial.

According to the National Weather Service, in 2018 alone, Chicago accumulated an estimated total of 49 inches of rainfall. Chicago is highly prone to flooding due to its unpredictable weather patterns and topography, and is also known as one of the largest sump pump markets in the United States. That’s not to negate however, anywhere it rains there is a chance of flooding. When considering all of those factors who, wouldn’t take the necessary precautions to avoid a flooded basement?

What Exactly Does a Smart Sump Pump Monitoring and Control Device Do?

Ion Technologies’ monitoring and control solutions are typically paired with digital level sensors and are designed to alert end users of critical sump pump information such as aggressive high water levels, power outages, and sump pump failure. When any given condition is present, the sump pump monitoring and control unit will issue an audible automatic warning to the end user.

Like many other instruments in our everyday lives, a smart sump pump controller also plays a pivotal role by giving you real-time awareness in an emergency situation where every second counts and costly investments can be at risk. Flooding can happen quickly, while repairing the damages can take months. Why not buy yourself time to minimize the potential of basement flooding?
