Leaky pipes, freezing temperature, faulty sump pumps leaky appliances can quickly cause expensive, devastating water damage to homes and offices. Water damage claims are so costly and prevalent that insurance companies are looking to protect themselves from these claims by having systems installed to prevent damage.
A water leak detection system can help notify the home owner, property owner, property manager or maintenance staff so they can deal with the problem quickly. A local alarm, phone call, email or text message can be used for notification in case of a water leak or flood. For even better protection consider a water leak detection system with automatic water shut off valve.
Simple water alarm sensors will notify local occupants. Our water and flood sensors are used to sound a local alarm when a water leak or flood is detected. The big difference between water sensors and water alarm systems is what happens when an alarm is triggered. Water detection sensors will make an alarm noise and some may be connected to a security system or alarm dialer for home automation and security purposes. Water leak detectors with a phone dialer, email or text alert can notify one or more owners or staff remotely for better protection during all hours of the day and night.
Since water can cause huge damage quickly, a water leak detection system with automatic water shut off provides the best protection since it not only provides a local or remote alert, but it automatically shuts of the water supply preventing major damage.
Install a flood and water damage prevention system and relax knowing you're protected.
A water shut off system will automatically close a water valve when a water leak is detected. We have units such as WaterCop which are meant to be installed at the water main. Or we have point of use products like FloodStop that can be installed at the hot water tank, dishwasher, sink or washing machine.
Whichever system you choose, you've gone a long way to protecting yourself. We still recommend taking precautions like turning off the water when away for an extended period of time, and working with a professional to ensure a water shut-off system is installed correctly and with sensors where they need to be.
