Sump pumps and high water alarm systems
According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the previous 12 months have been the wettest on record. In fact, 2022 marks the third year in a row in which the amount of precipitation in the U.S. has increased, and there is nothing to indicate this situation will change any time in the near future.
Given the ever-increasing rainfall totals around the city, we think it’s essential to have a sump pump to protect your residence, especially if you have a basement or garden residence that could be prone to flooding.
We also believe it’s equally important to have a working high water alarm system that lets you know when the water level in low lying areas of your residence is on the verge of becoming a serious problem.
In case you’re not already familiar with it, a high water alarm is used to monitor water levels in a tank to prevent disasters like basement flooding or a septic system backup. The sump pump alarm notifies you if a pump is failing or a drain line has become plugged. When inches of rain water or water from a leak run over the sump pump, it’s float switches on an alarm to let you know a flood is occurring in your basement.
This gives you time to respond and take corrective action before serious damage is done to your possessions and property.
High water alarms from SMG Security
SMG’s water probe alarm system allows water or any non-flammable fluid to be detected with both low voltage and low current. It can monitor two sensor probes simultaneously, making it ideal for basements, laundry rooms, kitchens, and any other area in your home where flooding is possible and an early warning is needed to prevent serious property damage.
Further, you can monitor our high water alarms remotely, just as you can screen our security cameras, giving you time to respond to a rising water issue before major damage is incurred.
