Water Leak and Freeze Detector Benefits

Water Leak and Freeze Detectors

Smart home products are something that can help your home detect a problem before an even bigger issue arises. There are plenty of smart home products that deal with your home’s plumbing and heating/cooling. A water leak and freeze detector will detect any leaks or freezes within your piping system. It will notify you as soon as it detects a problem. By catching the problem early, it can head off disaster and expensive repairs.

Small household leaks can potentially mean big household destruction, which can lead to expensive repairs or replacements. Water leaks can start small and continue to remain unnoticed for some time. Many people do not realize a water leak or pipe freeze until it is too late and the damage is already done. Even the smallest amount of water can seep into the flooring or walls, which can cause structural damage and/or mold. A water leak and freeze detector monitors water leaks and freezes 24/7 and will notify you as soon as a problem arises through a text message, email, or notification.

How does a water leak and freeze detector work?

You place the detector near a spot that could give you trouble, such as the water heater, washer, sump pump, and under sinks. When a leak or frozen pipe is detected, the product will alert you. The detector contains LED lights that will light red if a leak or freeze is noticed; a buzzer will then go off. A text message will then alert you, and you can call a local plumber as soon as possible to come look at the leak and get it fixed immediately. Prevent any bigger damage. If you detect a leak or freeze, call Jim Dandy at 206-966-4548 or 425-454-8153.

Get alerted immediately

When a leak or freeze is detected in your pipes, an audible alert will sound when you are at home. You will also get a text message or notification sent to your cell phone, which is beneficial because you can call a company to come and fix the issue as soon as you get the notification to help prevent further damage from happening. You can also set it up for your family, friends, or neighbors to receive notifications as well. This is extremely beneficial if you are out of town because the trusted individual can check if there is any damage and contact for repairs. The average water leak causes roughly $7,000 in damage. A water leak and freeze detector can help prevent the high cost in repairs.

Connects to Wi-Fi

There is no need for an extra hub with a water leak and freeze detector because it hooks up to your home’s standard Wi-Fi. This allows you to have an early warning system that can notify you on your smartphone when a leak is detected or a pipe freezes.
