Snowbirds are gearing up for winter – preparing to fly south and abandon their homes during the colder months. Whether you’re leaving for the entire season or just needing a warm holiday gateway, it’s important that your house is protected while you’re gone.

Water damage (including damage by freezing) accounts for approximately 30% of all homeowner insurance claims in the United States. Homes aren’t typically built with the anticipation of flooding, but as time goes on and the forces of nature take a toll, leaks are bound to happen eventually. Damage from water can come in many different forms, but the good news is that almost all water damage CAN be prevented with the right knowledge. Sump pumps are one of the most effective ways to prevent costly water damage. When asked, most people would consider their sump pump just a “household necessity” that they never have to worry about. That is, until it’s a maintenance emergency and the damage is done. At PumpSpy, we don’t want that to happen. And we especially don’t want it happening while you’re trying to enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle. 

With PumpSpy’s innovative SmartPump® Sump Pump System, we have made flood prevention and home monitoring easy and affordable. The wifi sump pump and automated backup system protects your home and tracks your system 24/7, even from the comfort of your beach chair. Each of PumpSpy’s SmartPump® Systems automatically monitors incoming data from your sump pump and checks that everything is working properly at all times. In the event of a sump pump problem or power outage, you’ll get instant alerts to your smartphone, tablet and/or computer. 

From simple plug-in Smart Outlets that monitor your existing sump pump to smart combination primary and backup systems, PumpSpy provides you with solutions to match the level of protection you desire while you’re away. While some types of water damages are covered by homeowners insurance, there are still many causes that standard policies will not cover – including sump pump failures. Water damage repair can be expensive and time-consuming, but with PumpSpy solutions you can prevent the problems before they occur.

Don’t come home to a flooded basement and costly damage. Simply plug in your sump pump to any PumpSpy system, download the free, easy-to-use app and enjoy your time in the sun! With PumpSpy Technologies, you’ll have peace of mind leaving your nest knowing that your home will be monitored and protected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
