In addition to the cost benefits, early water leak detection also provide many health and safety benefits by helping to prevent standing water that can lead to mold growth and pest infestations.
- Prevent costly repairs – When caught early, significant damage to your property can be greatly reduced. With early detection, small leaks can be repaired quickly to prevent paying for costly emergency repairs.
- Protect living and work spaces – Water leak detectors alert you of small leaks so you can prevent damage to furniture, walls, floors, carpets, electronics, etc. Without early water detection, small leaks can easily go unnoticed until visible signs appear, such as strange odors, wall discoloration or sagging ceilings, which means extensive damage has already occurred. Early detection also reduces the chances of water pooling in one spot and turning into a breeding ground for unhealthy mold and mildew.
- Avoid safety risks – Foundation or plumbing leaks can cause flooding in basements. If the water rises high enough to interact with electrical appliances or wall outlets, it can carry electrical currents over long distances increasing the risk of electrocution. Flooding also poses a fire risk if light fixtures or electrical wiring get wet.
- Lower insurance premiums – businesses and property owners across the country pay billions of dollars every year in costly repairs caused by water damage. Many insurance companies offer a discount on premiums for installing water leak detection systems.
- Reduce utility bills – unexpected increases in water bills usually indicates a water leak. Water leak detectors alert you to water overages before you receive an unusually high utility bill.
- Remote monitoring – water leaks can happen any time of the day or night. Remote monitoring lets you check in on water levels any time, anywhere, and gives you quick and easy access to shut-off valves and sensors in the event of an emergency.
