Your WaterWatch® Alarm will sound off to let you know if water has risen past the point where the pumps should have turned on.
If your alarm on the sump lid is screeching, and you DO NOT have an UltraSump battery back-up pump here's what you should do. First, pull the alarm straight up and out, then dry it off and/or remove the battery to stop the screeching.
The reason for pulling the alarm out and drying it off is because the probe at the bottom sounds off when water reaches it. It may take a moment before the alarm stops.
Next, check the pump's electrical outlet. Plug a small lamp, hair dryer, radio, etc. into the same outlet. If there's no power, the circuit breaker may need switched back on. If there's power, call 800-942-2942 for a service appointment, because your primary pump may be failing.
If your alarm on the sump lid is screeching, and you DO have an UltraSump battery back-up pump here's what you should do. First, pull the alarm straight up and out, then dry it off and/or remove the battery to stop the screeching. Your back-up pump will turn on once the water rises to a certain level. You will hear the back-up pump sound an alarm only if it discharges water. If you hear an intermittent beeping, that means your back-up pump is working, but your primary pump may have failed. So call 800-942-2942 for a service appointment. Your battery back-up pump will re-charge once the power returns to the pump's electrical outlet.
Don't forget to replace the WaterWatch® Alarm once the pump is functional. You should not replace it until the water level has receded, otherwise it will sound off again.
If you live in Bethel Park, PA, Mt. Lebanon, PA, Wheeling, WV, Morgantown, WV, or Moundsville, WV, you must obtain a permit for your home improvement project. You will need to get in contact with your local municipal's planning office to do this. We recommend you keep a copy of your estimate in case it is required.
The permit certifies the work is done correctly and helps the resale of your home. Staying involved every step of the way will help you get through the process quicker and for less cost.
