Q: What is the best sump pump alarm?
by Eric from Minnesota on May 15, 2012

A: Well, that can be a matter of opinion. Our best selling sump pump alarm right now is the Basement Watchdog model BWD-HWA, which is a basic alarm with a sensor. The Superior Pump Universal Sump & Sewage Pump Alarm System model 92060 is a little different style of alarm and can be used in both sump & sewage pump applications and is our #2 best selling alarm. If you are looking for a little more in an alarm system, the Protected Home Deluxe FreezeAlarm & Dialer model FA-D2 coupled with the Protected Home WaterSiren Plus model WS-04 will give you protection with extreme high or low temperatures and potential flooding by sounding an alarm AND calling up to 3 different phone numbers with a pre-recorded alert message. This system also has other capabilities when coupled with optional equipment such as a special second thermostat in your home. Please note that this system does require a land based phone system to carry out the call alerts.

Q: Jim, are there any sensors that can detect water or moisture in the surrounding area? Like a five foot radius?
by Tom Spendlove from Michigan on April 07, 2011

A: The basement Watchdog model BWD-HWA will detect water only 1/32" deep when the alarm is placed on floor. Most of our other ALARM SYSTEMS can either be placed on the floor or the sensors can be on the floor to provide an alert system for any flood prone area. As you can see, we also have systems that can be connected to a phone dialer to call any programed phone number to alert you of a possible flooding problem. As far as being able to detect water that is, say 5 feet away from a sensor, however, I don't believe there is anything available at this time.

Basement Watchdog
Bought the Basement Watchdog to install in an unfinished basement at a rental property. The product is a basic water alarm that does what it's supposed to do. Alarm is loud enough to hear in the living area. Am satisfied with this purchase for the price paid.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: NONE

Water Alarm Worth Every Penny
I had some water issues and resolved them all with rain gutter cleaning, grading and sump pump replacement. As a precaution I purchased three competitor water alarms from another website. They worked but were almost inaudible unless in the same room. I tried the Basement Watchdog and was extremely impressed! Very loud, almost as loud as a smoke detector. I have several of these around the home and have purchased several for friends. Highly, highly recommended and no I don't have stock in this... more

Woke Me Up!
The alarm worked, and was loud enough to wake me up when water reached the top of the crock due to power failure from "SANDY".

The only problem was trying to keep up with bailing the water in the candle light. DIDN'T WORK. I just ordered a Basement Watchdog Special Backup. I'm planning to get a backup for my primary pump and possibly a small gas generator as well.

My wife and I sat on the stairs and watched the water rise as our personal items floated by. Don't take the... more

Seems To Be A Good Device
Seems to be very loud like a smoke alarm. Haven't used it other then test , install was easy. Only thing is wish there was better way to secure the sensor ,secured it wit zip ties through the secure holes in sensor but when securing it to pipe kind of smashes the sensor wire.

You could try mounting the sensor on a bracket/pipe clamp.

Seems Adequate.
Tested it out, and it works in water or even with the moisture from your fingers on the sensor. The alarm seems fairly loud.

Didn't test it through my block wall in my crawl space, but if the battery keeps it going for 3 days as it says, I'm sure it would be noticed. It seems just a little softer than a standard smoke alarm.
