Alarm on well pump

Has anybody installed some kind of alarm that would let you know if a pump stops working? What are these called, who makes them, and how much do they cost?

We are under contract on a park with well water, and in addition to all the inspections it would make me feel good to know that I would know as soon as the pump needs to be replaced so that we can react.

I own two parks with well water. One has a brand new setup with full telemetry I can pull up on the web portal. The other doesn’t have anything - my operator takes voltage measurements to try and determine when the pumps need replacing, but otherwise we respond if we get a no water call. All depends on how much you want to spend on the front end and as recurring costs.

Would you be able to tell me what set up you have at your park with full telemetry? I have a park that has a well and I am looking to upgrade it.

Neptune meters (3 wells, each has its own, plus one for back flushing) tied into a central command center (brand name is slipping my mind) hooked to a network router (satellite) from Generating Solutions. Let’s myself and our operator get real time data, alarms, etc. I didn’t install it so I’m not sure on price….

Thank you for the information.
