A power outage or tripped circuit can cause your sump pump to stop working. The pump could come unplugged or an especially heavy rain could overwhelm it.
In all of these instances, your basement or crawl space is at risk of flooding. If you don't know that the pump isn't working, you'll find out the hard way -- when there is water in your home.
A battery-operated pump alarm alerts you when water is rising and the pump hasn't started working. This allows you to figure out what the problem is, potentially preventing the flooding that would have occurred had you not known the pump was not working properly.
