The new Pentair Sump Controller helps minimise the risk of flooding at home by providing homeowner with real-time pump alerts and activating the sump pump when waters rise in the home during a weather event.

Paired with the Pentair Home app, the sump controller enables the user to operate their sump pump remotely from their mobile device, access important performance information and receive real-time alerts.

In the event the basement starts to take in water, the sump controller activates the sump pump and will operate the pump even if the primary float switch fails, helping lower the risk of flooding and damage to property. It also counts the number of cycles the pump has completed and the amount of run time per cycle, helping detect failures before they occur. The universal outlet allows the user to use the Pentair Sump Controller with most existing sump pumps.

Additionally, the user can view maintenance reports through the Pentair Home App and contact a local pump dealer if a problem arises. The Pentair Sump Controller is now available in the US, Canada and Mexico.
