SJE Rhombus Xpert Alert Wi-Fi

The Xpert Alert Wi-Fi indoor alarm system from SJE Rhombus helps protect a home from costly damage due to flooding, pump failure or freezing pipes. The system monitors and reports residential alarm condition by notifying locally (audible and visual alarms) and remotely via SMS text messages and/or emails. It uses an existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet network to send messages, meaning there are no monthly fees or contracts. The sleek design incorporates an LED alarm light ring that illuminates red for alarm 1 and amber for alarm 2. The red low-temperature indicator activates at 40 degrees F to alert about potential freezing conditions, but it can be deactivated for cold climates. It is CSA certified. 888-342-5753; www.sjerhombus.com.


Controls/Control Panels

Aquaworx by Infiltrator IPC Panel

The Intelligent Pump Control (IPC) Panel from Aquaworx by Infiltrator transforms pump system performance. The easy-to-install panel monitors liquid levels, controls pumping time intervals, logs events in real time, and calculates daily system flow utilizing a pressure transducer in the pump chamber and an embedded microprocessor in the pump controller. The Tapper, a hand-held Wi-Fi enabled programmer, broadcasts a wireless signal that allows the user to program the panel using any Wi-Fi enabled device. Once connected, the user navigates to a website that has all the control settings for the panel and provides the operator with a history of system function critical to troubleshooting and maintaining a pump-driven system. The Tapper is intended for use with multiple panels and includes a USB slot, allowing the user to capture and download system events and settings onto a removable USB memory device. 800-221-4436; www.infiltratorwater.com.

Saniflo Sanicondens Best Flat

The Sanicondens Best Flat from Saniflo is a low-profile condensate pump with a built-in neutralizer, used for boilers, HVAC and water heater systems. It is capable of neutralizing acidic condensate up to 5,000,000 Btu/h and discharging condensate up to 15 feet in height and/or 150 feet away from a soil stack. Not all condensate requires neutralization, as it can be drained into a third inlet located on the top of the pump near the discharge line. This third inlet bypasses the neutralizer pellets, carrying condensate directly to the pump impeller, where it is immediately discharged. The compact system can be either floor- or wall-mounted and comes ready to install with connections to an external overflow, shut-off switch or alarm system. It includes all necessary hardware for ease of installation, including 20 feet of vinyl tubing, inlet adapter, discharge adapter and neutralizing granules. 800-571-8191; www.saniflo.com.
