Sump Pump Alarm Systems in Atlanta
If you own a sump pump, you know that it helps protect your property by preventing basements and crawlspaces from flooding. The system collects excess water and diverts it away from your foundation during emergencies. However, while sump pumps are great tools and assets to have as a form of self-insurance in the event of plumbing disasters, they do not eliminate the need for you to act when water threatens to damage your property.
That’s where sump pump alarm systems come in—they alert you when a sump pump is in action, or even before they’re needed. Most sump pump alarms can tell you:
- When they detect water above a certain level
- When temperatures are low enough that pipes may freeze
- When a power outage occurs (sump pumps require power to function)
Sump pump alarms are designed to help you take action before your property is damaged. They are great investments if you want to protect your home!

What Do I Do if My Sump Pump Alarm Is Going Off?
If your sump pump alarm goes off, before you call an Atlanta plumber, follow these troubleshooting steps:
Check the system’s power. Depending on the model you have, you may need to replace the alarm’s battery, or you may need to flip the circuit breaker it’s attached to.
Check the sump pump tank’s water level. Have the alarm’s sensors gotten wet? This may mean that the pump can’t keep up with the amount of water that’s coming into the basin, and you may need to act.
Use your judgment. Even if a sump pump alarm’s sensors have gotten wet, there may not be an impending disaster. It may just be that the pump isn’t quite keeping up with the water during high-peak usage, but it will soon regain its lead. This is common during short but heavy rainstorms.
If going through these steps did not alleviate your fears about a plumbing emergency, contact a professional plumbing contractor right away! No matter if it’s a holiday or weekend, R.S. Andrews is the Atlanta 24 hour plumber you can trust to quickly respond to and solve your problem.
