11% of all basement floods are caused by sump pump failure

If worries about sump pump failure have kept you up at night, Alert Labs has just announced an innovative solution to help you rest easy. The world’s first predictive sump pump sensor, Sumpie, is now available for customer Beta trials. Tech enthusiasts can benefit from Sumpie’s predictive analytics by applying to the Alert Labs Sumpie Beta Program. Early adopters can also take advantage of special savings by pre-ordering Sumpie today.


save your basement. prevent sump pump failure.

For the first time, home and property owners can prevent sump pump failure with real-time updates and analytics. Sump pumps are essential for keeping basements free from water damage, but many of them fail due to a lack of regular maintenance. This is especially alarming when you consider that 11% of basement floods are caused by sump pump failure and that the average repair cost of a basement flood is $42,000. And, these figures don’t factor in the time wasted for repairs and emotional trauma experienced when irreplaceable items such as photos are lost to water damage.

“We’re excited about the possibilities of a product like Sumpie,” says Roy Jason Ashdown Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer, Skyline Group of Companies. “Sumpie’s 24/7 monitoring and instant alerts will assure us that the sump pumps at our properties are in good working order protecting our customers from water damage.”

easy install. easy platform.

One of the most enticing features of Sumpie, is that anyone can install Sumpie in less than two minutes without a plumber. In most cases, installation is as easy as (1) clipping Sumpie to the sump pump pipe, (2) plugging it in, and (3) registering the sensor with the Alert Labs’ Dashboard. The Dashboard, for computer and mobile, provides access to graphs and analytics for sump pump performance, current sump pit water level, and a historical record of all flood alerts.

works in a power outage

With other monitoring solutions, WiFi routers and the sensors that connect to them stop working when there is a power outage due to a storm, for example. However, Sumpie uses a cellular connection and has a back up-battery to continue sending real-time alerts even when the power is out.

"Sumpie is a natural next step in our successful property protection roadmap", says George Tsintzouras, Alert Labs' CEO. "We've heard from thousands of commercial and residential property managers, as well as homeowners who want the peace of mind that comes from knowing their property is safe from floods and that their sump pump is operating properly. We’re also excited about helping property managers use Sumpie to monitor elevator shafts for floods.”
