What Is a Sump Pump Alarm Supposed to Do?

A sump pump alarm helps you know when the water is too high in your basement or crawl space sump pump system, making it difficult for your pump to remove the water effectively. The alarm typically rests on top of the sump pump, and when it gets wet, it beeps like a smoke alarm.

If the sump pump alarm works properly, it can help you discover that the water’s too high and you need a backup plan to help prevent basement or crawl space flooding. It must be loud so you can hear it from the rest of the home.
