This system could save your home from being severely damaged by a water leak that occurs while you are away or asleep. Water pipes run through your entire home and are used by many home appliances such as: dishwashers, clothes washing machines, hot water heaters, water softeners, and toilets. If one of these appliances fails, the result could be water flowing into your home. Freezing temperatures can also cause pipe breaks and subsequent water flooding.
Here are some statistics to think about:
- Every year more than 250,000 homes sustain water damage caused by leaking or ruptured water pipes.
- Washing machine hose failures alone cause approximately $150 million in damage to homes in North America each year.
- Approximately 5 million hot water heaters rupture each year.
Our freeze detection systems not only sense leaks, but also have temperature sensors. If the temperature at the sensor(s) in your home drops below a specified temperature, our freeze detection system will send us an alarm. We will notify you or your key holders to lessen or prevent damage if a frozen pipe bursts.
