Operating Instructions and Parts Manual

Installation (continued)

5.Tighten the nut against the float switch bracket by hand.

6.Next, remove the twist tie holding the wire bundle together. Stretch out the wire and do not allow the transmitter to fall into the sump pit.

7.The float switch should be placed just above the normal maximum water level in the sump pit. Use the existing water level marks as a guide.

note: the alarm will sound when the float rises on the float stem. Make certain the float is positioned above the normal “ON” level for the sump pump.

8.The float switch must be mounted with the wire pointing up.

NOTE: IF THE LIGHT CONTINUEES TO FLASH, LIFT UP THE FLOAT TO RESET THE SYSTEM

Figure 6: Mount transmitter

13.Next mount the transmitter on a smooth flat surface (Fig. 6).

NOTE: It is beneficial to mount the transmitter as high as possible to improve range. Attach the transmitter with the suction

cup provided on the back of the transmitter. If necessary, the suction cup can be glued directly to the pump discharge pipe by using PVC cement. If this is done, be sure to locate the transmitter at a location above the sump pit lid.

Operation

TESTING

The Flood Alert™ Wireless Sump Pump Monitoring System should be tested by lifting the float switch (Fig. 7.)

It should beep and the LED should illuminate. Only the float switch portion is waterproof, the transmitter portion should never be submerged in water.

Figure 7: Test sensor manually

When the float switch becomes submerged in water the receiver will beep and flash. The beeping will continue until float switch drops back down to its normal position. The receiver can now be placed in another area of the house. Have an assistant lift the float switch to verify the system is working. If the green light is flashing the transmitter is no longer being detected. The receiver is equipped with a volume control on the side of the unit (Fig. 8).

Operation (continued)

During a flood emergency the warning beeper volume can be reduced or turned off completely. The mute button (Fig. 10) can be used to temporarily silence the alarm. Remember to turn the beeper back on after the issue in the sump pit has been resolved.

Optional: Adding Additional Transmitters

The receiver is capable of monitoring up to four different sump pits. Transmitters for homes with multiple sump pits may be purchased separately. Additional programming steps are required for multiple monitoring stations.

For additional transmitters call WAYNE pumps at 1-800-237-0987 to order part number: 66902-001

Code Connectors

The code connectors consist of 6 movable circuits on both the

transmitter and receiver. The code connectors are required for the sensor to communicate with the receiver.

Open the top cover of the sensor

(Fig. 9) and the back cover of the receiver (Fig. 10) for access to the code connectors. Both sets of code

connectors must match for the Wireless Alarm to work properly.

These code connectors can be set at any random pattern. Be sure to use the same pattern on the receiver that is used on the transmitter.

Note: If you experience interference from a nearby system, which could accidentally trigger your system, please change the code settings on the sensor and receiver. The code setting on the sensor and receiver Must match after changing the code setting.

zone Connectors

The receiver can work with up to 4 different sensors. There are 4 different lights on the receiver that correspond to each zone.

On the transmitter, there are 2 connectors that determine zone numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4. These 2 connectors can be found by opening the top plastic cover, near the code connectors with marking

“A” & “B” (Fig. 12).

Please follow table A to set the zone.

A positive sign (+) means the connector is placed on the posts.

After setting up all the connectors, both units are ready to be powered up.

Plug in the adapter to the receiver, the green LED will start flashing, indicating the receiver unit is powered up but no sensor is detected.

Remove the top cover of the sensor and insert the 3V lithium battery to the transmitter (Fig. 5).

After inserting the battery to the water sensor, the receiver will beep and the green LED on the receiver will stop flashing and stay on.

NOTE: IF THE LIGHT CONTINUEES TO FLASH, LIFT UP THE FLOAT TO RESET THE SYSTEM

Note: Only the sensor portion of the water sensor is waterproof, the transmitter portion should never be submerged in water.

Put the top cover back on and you are now ready to mount the water sensor.
