Prevent a Basement Flood Before It Starts

If you have ever had a flooded basement, you know that one of the first thoughts a homeowner has is “I wish I had caught this sooner.” Indeed, if you want to prevent a basement flood, catching the problem early is key. Saving your basement (and your money) could come down to owning a basement flood alarm. These alarms are capable of notifying you when even a minor amount of water begins to collect on your basement floor. Moreover, some devices have sensors that can be placed into floor drains and sump wells, detecting rising water before it gets into the wrong place.

Saving Your Basement is Cheap

While there are all different kinds of basement water alarms out there, they are by no means expensive; especially when considering the damage that can be done in a flood.

Basement Watchdog Water Sensor & Alarm

Basement Watchdog Water Sensor & Alarm

The Basement Watchdog Water Sensor and Alarm, for example, is a great option that can be owned for less than $13. This device can either be sat directly on the floor or have the sensor detached and located in the desired spot. This makes it ideal for floor drains and sump wells. Powered by a 9V battery, it can last for up to 5 years without needing a new one. This means the only time you’ll need to worry about it during that time is if the 110 dB alarm sounds. Being so affordable, you can place several throughout your basement. A $13 investment could save you thousands of dollars next time your sump pump fails or floor drain backs up.

Smart Alarms

iHome iSB02 Battery Powered WI-FI Dual Leak Sensor

Not all water alarms and sensors are limited to just emitting an audible warning. Some will send you an email or smart phone notification when water has been detected. One such device is the iHome SB02 Battery Powered WI-FI Dual Leak Sensor. This product allows you to monitor for water in two nearby locations. It connects to your home’s WiFi network, and will notify you via push notification if water is detected. It also sounds an audible alarm so those in the home will be made aware of the water intrusion. The best part is that this peace of mind can be had for less than $30.

Prevent a Basement Flood, Avoid Costly Repairs

The average insurance claim for a flooded basement is around $15,000. Why lose your deductible (and your mind) if it is easily avoidable? Prevent a basement flood with water sensors and alarms.
