    DIY Sump Pump Alarm

    element14 Presents  | Project Videos



    Houses with a basement are in a constant fight with the underground water table. As incredible as indoor swimming pools might sound, they are not very fun for a homeowner! Sump systems collect the water that enters a basement and then pump it out of the house; that is, when they have the power they need! The Sump Pump Alarm from Mike (kmikemoo) looks excellent, very functional, and uses all of the parts in the project. A USB power bank is an ideal backup power supply to run a monitoring system to let someone know when the pump isn’t working. We all enjoyed Mike’s excellent project demo video, so you should check it out too!
