Imagine the structural and cosmetic damage and the inconvenience you would experience if a leak from your home’s water heater went undetected. Think about the operational destruction and disruption of business caused by an unnoticed cracked pipe in your company’s utility room. And, there is always the danger of a storm or broken water main causing flooding inside while you are not there. A reliable water alarm that would alert you when a situation needs your attention could save much money and heartache for your family or business.
Modern monitoring systems offer even more system management options that ever before. In addition to a water alarm, you can opt for a freeze monitor that will alert you when temperatures drop low enough to potentially freeze your water pipes. Also available are power failure sensors that tell you when the electricity has gone out and when it has been restored. Whether you install these systems in your home, office or on properties you manage, their ultimate value is easy to imagine.
A water alarm, in general, is designed to detect leaks or overflows caused by anything from a broken water heater or leaking hose to flooding caused by main city pipe breaks or major weather events. Put simply, a water alarm will alert you when water accumulates where it is not supposed to be so you can take immediate action to minimize damage.
Basic alarms should be loud enough to be heard from anywhere in your house, of course. But a programmable water alarm will also text or email your phone in case a problem develops while you are away from home. If your basement is a finished living space, this feature could help minimize expensive damage to floors, furniture and electronics. Even if your basement is unfinished, knowing about excess moisture will help you control mold and mildew that could affect your family’s health.
If you are considering a commercial application, a dependable water alarm offers the same peace of mind as a residential water alarm. Even if everything harmed or ruined is covered by insurance, lost production time or unfocused employee hours during the repair period could represent a major business expense.
There are many types of water alarm to consider, depending on your residential or commercial need and your budget. You may want a straightforward basement sump pump water alarm or a model that also monitors your sewage pump. You may prefer a more comprehensive freeze-flood-power failure combination alarm and any of several types of controls and accessories that are available.
