Sense helped track a problem with our pump.

The component that turns our pump on and off has had some issues lately. Occasionally the contacts don’t close and the pump continues to run when it shouldn’t. Being able to identify this problem using Sense has done more than save money on energy; it may have saved our pump’s life expectancy.

Share how you used the Sense app to help. Be specific!:
Once Sense identified our pump, I would check occasionally knowing we have had this issue (prior to getting our Sense). In perusing the app, I realized that you can set up alerts for things. I was able to set up a notification that tells us if the pump has been running more than 5 minutes (which it shouldn't). When I get that, I know that we have to manually adjust the contacts so that the pump will go off.
