It’s the D.I.Y. solution for replacing your current sump pump with an efficient, cost-saving one that includes a redundant battery backup system with 24 hour a day monitoring and a Wifi capable controller. With two sump pumps in your sump pit, continuous monitoring and remote notification allowing you to receive texts, emails and in App alerts you can feel safe that your basement is protected.

The backup controller also includes a USB port that connects to the Basement Watchdog® CONNECT® WiFi module, allowing you to receive texts, emails and in App alerts for the ultimate peace of mind when you’re away from home.
