Sense saved me from a stinky, smelly, and expensive mess

On the constant quest to avoid unexpected repairs and expenses, I love finding new ways to prevent them from happening.

Share how you used the Sense app to help. Be specific!:
I have a sewage ejector pump to handle my basement drains to pump out to the septic system. Based on the pump's history on Sense, it would always run at least once per day even if no one was home using water. I set up a custom alert in Sense where I would be notified if the pump didn't run for 26 hours. Sure enough, 6 months later the pump failed. I received a Sense notification and was able to confirm the pump indeed had expired, without the headache of the mess if it went on undetected!
