The most reliable sump pump system ever created

Welcome to the SafeSump™. Our mission is to stop the pandemic of basement floods across Canada due to faulty and out-dated sump pumps. We’ve revolutionized the conventional sump pump system and take an entirely new approach to keeping water out of your basement. This means lower risk and you’ll never be surprised by a failed sump pump again.

If you have a sump and you want to fix the Achilles heel of your home, you’ve come to the right place.

Cloud Control Panel

The SafeSump™ constantly updates our secure cloud control panel that you can view from anywhere, telling you what’s going on with your pump and, if there’s a problem, how to fix it.

Real-time Alerts

If a situation occurs such as a power outage, our systems will detect that your SafeSump™ has gone offline and will alert you. Real-time alerts keep you up-to-date with relevant risks in real-time. No more surprises.

Two Pumps & A Controller

No more pump failure anxiety. If the primary pump fails, the controller will seamlessly switch to the backup pump. Our two pumps and included software take care of everything.

Sonar Water Sensor

The SafeSump™ uses a beam of sound to accurately detect the water level on a continual basis. Sounds can’t sink, and there’s no moving parts to break. Expect better accuracy and longevity as a result.

Variable Speed Pump

Our pump adapts to the incoming water speed on a continually. No more loud noises and mechanical failures from normal pumps. 

Battery Backup

Connect any standard 12v battery to the SafeSump™ and get up to 20-40 hours on battery backup.* You finally have a stress-free plan when the power goes out.

Autonomous Operation

All the features outlined above work flawlessly behind the scenes. The SafeSump™ always reacts to potential threats in real-time.

Security is important to everyone. All SafeSump™ data is secured with industry standard AES encryption, trusted by banks and the highest levels of government.

Our Story
    ‘I thought to myself that there just has to be a better way’. Growing up, I watched my dad, again and again, crouched down on the concrete floor, working on our basement sump pit. Trying to quiet down noisy rattles. Replacing yet another dead battery, worn pump or trying out another loud water alarm.
Despite all that effort, he never really had peace of mind when we were away, especially on vacation. I saw the results of sump pump failures firsthand when our neighbours’ home flooded while they were on vacation in Florida. And I heard the numerous stories involving other homes, in our region and further away, how they had flooded, or how close they had come to ending up with two feet of water in their basements.
I was surprised by statistics about the average price tag to remedy basement flooding and how often it is not covered by insurance even though homeowners mistakenly believe that it is. And I was even more amazed that we were still using old-fashioned and failure prone mechanics in light of such staggering financial and emotional cost.
Passionate about electronics and programming, I set out to design a better sump pump system. One that would allow homeowners to log in from their phone or tablet and obtain information on how their sump pump system is running; that would alert them to issues, but more than that, be able to tell them how many hours their backup can keep running in case of a hydro failure; the number of hours their pump has run and if it may be coming close to its expected end of life; if their battery is holding a charge and if there may be a blockage in the line. And even more than that, one that would not include mechanical floats that are prone to failure, but use the most advanced in digital sensor technology instead; and one that would contain sophisticated programming to run quietly, and autonomously react to anything unusual.
It has taken more than two years, many versions and lots of testing, but together as a family we have now reached the milestone of our first large pilot project. From here, we expect the Safe sump to be available for sale later this fall.
