Application: Systems and methods for manipulating control of sump pumps to extend lifespans of sump pumps (Patent ID: US20240035478A1)

The patent filed by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. discloses systems and methods for controlling sump pumps to prolong their lifespan. The method involves activating the sump pump, deactivating it when the water level in the sump basin reaches a low-water mark, and then reactivating it after a certain time period to maintain the water level below the impeller. The system utilizes sensors to detect water levels and movement, ensuring the impeller is not exposed to standing water for extended periods, thus reducing wear and tear.

The patent also includes provisions for providing alerts when the water level does not decrease as expected, using sensors positioned strategically in the sump basin. By monitoring water events and pump activations, the system can effectively manage the sump pump operation to prevent damage to the impeller. Overall, the technology aims to optimize the control of sump pumps to enhance their efficiency and longevity by minimizing exposure to standing water and ensuring timely activation and deactivation based on water levels and impeller position.
