Identifying excessive water flow and preventing surplus amounts of escape is an essential part of any building maintenance strategy. That’s because early leak detection can mean the crucial difference between small-scale disruption that’s straightforward to resolve, and damage that costs several hours and hundreds – if not thousands – of pounds to repair.

Armed with automated leak detection technology, organisations can not only remove the headache of resource monitoring and make the process of damage control more efficient, they can also help to protect one of the world’s most precious resources – which should be at the fore of every business agenda in today’s sustainability climate.

The Waterguard Puddle is one intuitive interface that can offer significant support to a variety of sites and sectors – not least due to its language-free installation and operation. Each system in the multi-zone unit has the ability to monitor up to five channels using a host of application-dependant sensing devices – including water sensing cable or tape, water sensing feet and/or float switches.

With a variety of options to suit requirements, key features of the Waterguard Puddle leak detection system include sequential audio and visual alerts to indicate which channel has alarmed, intelligent sensing to prevent re-alerts if the level of contact remains consistent, and automatic water shut off in the event of concern.

Including components approved by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS), certifying compliance with high industry standards, the Puddle is a renowned toolkit item ensuring efficient and responsible use of water.

Suitable for any building type, installation can take place in a variety of locations, including:

  • The voids below raised floors
  • Bathrooms beneath the bath panel
  • Kitchens behind utilities
  • Above suspended ceilings
  • Tie-wrapped to individual pipes
  • Run in drip trays
  • Laid around the base of an item of plant apparatus or tank
  • Laid in loops or wave pattern for general monitoring of larger areas

And most importantly, the system requires minimal maintenance. Here at Waterguard, we simply recommend that the Puddle valve is detached and cleaned with limescale remover every 12 months – as build up can cause the unit to fail – and that users routinely check any water sensing tape for contaminants to mitigate the risks of alarm disruption.
