If you want to make absolutely sure that the pump is actually doing it's
job, you might want to use a flow switch on the outlet pipe. Pumps can
get clogged, or stuck, or seize altogether.
I would put the LED on the flow sensor.
I have yet to see a sump pump last anymore than a few years these days.
They are all basically made in China now with the cheapest of parts.
I had a sump pump on my rain water collection system. It would transfer
the water from my rain gutters to a 250 gallon holding tank. In 3 years
I went through 4 sump pumps. One even kept tripping my GFCI. I removed
the sump pump setup, and replaced it with an cheap Intex swimming pool
pump that a neighbor was throwing away. It has worked flawlessly for the
past 2 years.
I have since added a second 250 gallon tank, and I use my rain water
collection system to top off my swimming pool, and to fully irrigate my
lawn. I haven't used my well water in many years now.

Is there anything like this to detect and indicate -
(audible would be nice !) return of grid AC voltage ?
When I'm on the generator, during a grid outage -
- as I was for the last 3 days - I'd like to be alerted
when the grid power is restored.
I do not wish to be wiring home-made things into the main panel -
but some sort of clip-on - over the conductor - would be nice
