Kevlyn Pumps Water  Heater Watchdog

The Water Heater Watchdog from Kevlyn Pumps is a water heater leak protection device. It is easy to install and replaces traditional PVC connections. Its reservoir contains a pump so it can pump the water that eventually leaks from the hot water heater tank to a safe location thereby reducing the risk of flooding and property damage. This device can be used in below-grade applications or multiunit buildings where gravity-fed systems will not work. It is connected to a fluid collection pan (which is not included) and the 24-volt system plugs directly into the home’s GFI receptacle, so there are no batteries to change. The 100-decibel alarm and the pump makes it suitable for most water heater installations. 610-214-3030; www.waterheaterwatchdog.com


Flo by Moen Smart Sump Pump Monitor

The Flo by Moen Smart Sump Pump Monitor uses connected smart technology to help homeowners reduce the risk of flooding as a result of failed sump pumps by providing monitoring and alerts when potential failures or unusual conditions are detected. It can detect sump pump water levels, performance, power loss, humidity, temperature, leaks and Wi-Fi status to help ensure the pump is working efficiently and prevent against water damage. If an abnormality or leak is detected, homeowners are alerted through their preferred notification method or through an audible alarm to help protect their home. 877-663-6776; www.moenpro.com


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, according to the maker.

It uses an existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet network to send messages. The 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 for 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 Intelligent Pump Control

The Intelligent Pump Control 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 Aquaworx Tapper handheld Wi-Fi programmer broadcasts a 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 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


Aeration Pumps

Jet Inc. 700++ aerator

The flood-resistant Jet Inc. 700++ aerator is the only mechanical component in the 1500 Series BAT Media Plant and works in tandem with the BAT Media to provide complete biological processing. The aerator shaft spins and combines outside air with wastewater in the treatment compartment, flowing into the tank to provide oxygen for the treatment process. The dual-purpose foam restrictor protects the aerator by controlling foam created in the treatment chamber and also serves as a high-water alarm trigger. 800-321-6960; www.jetincorp.com
