How do you know your
Sump Pumps are working?

The only way to ensure your pumps are properly working is to test them EVERY DAY.


Basement DefenderTM is the only system that TESTS sump pumps every morning and ALERTS to problems before an emergency situation.

It’s like having a service technician
watching your sump pit activity 24/7.

How It Works

Every morning, Basement DefenderTM activates primary and battery backup pumps to run for a few seconds. We like to think of it as exercising the pumps, so they’re in perfect shape to spring into action when you need them to do their job.

Basement DefenderTM is constantly watching

Activity

Humidity

Battery
Strength

Temperature

Even more, Basement DefenderTM is constantly watching for changes in the sump system, like pump activity, battery strength, amperage/voltage and environmental factors like temperature and humidity. When a concern is detected, Basement DefenderTM instantly sends an alert to you via text, app notification, or even email.

Basement DefenderTM is a proactive approach that give ultimate peace of mind in your sump pump system.

Having gone through the trauma of a flooded basement, rainy forecasts used to give me anxiety. Basement DefenderTM has changed my life! The peace of mind knowing my pumps are properly functioning and ready to spring into action when needed is priceless.

Our Story

The Basement DefenderTM was invented by Chicago’s own Roy Spencer, entrepreneur, and founder of Chicagoland’s leader in basement and foundation repair, Perma-Seal Basement Systems.

The idea was born from the frustration that no matter how vigilant you are your sump pump can and will fail, without warning. There had to be a more proactive approach. What if you could be notified when your pump fails, before a disaster hits?
