Every so often, water leaks can occur in the home, even for the most careful homeowner. Luckily, most of them occur in easy-to-reach areas like the toilet, bath, shower, or under the sink. Sometimes, properties are not so fortunate.
The term ‘slab leak’ refers to a leak which takes place in the pipes under your home and its foundations — specifically, the concrete slab that many homes are built on.
Such leaks that occur out of sight are hard to detect and can often be detrimental to your property. As the pipes underneath the ground begin to leak, the water seeps into the surrounding area — potentially damaging the concrete and eroding the soil around it.
If left undetected, this can cause your home’s foundations to shift, flooding the lower levels of the property, and damaging your sheetrock and paint. In addition, your water bill usage and charges could skyrocket.
Luckily, we have a solution.
Each of Waterguard’s systems effectively monitors and tracks the flow of water through any pipeline. And, if at any point an abnormal flow is spotted, the system will immediately cut off the water stream to the building by closing a valve within the leak detector.
These products are typically situated at the property’s water entry point, which means that no matter where the leak is located, minimum damage will be caused. Our systems are fully programmable, which means you can customise them to suit your own requirements too.
By logging the measure of water passing the sensor, or any time delays, the product can register any potential problems, and prevent further damage from occurring.
Waterguard products can protect your home or property from one of the most prevalent causes of insurance claims — water damage. Whether as a result of faulty plumbing materials, failed connections, human error, or burst pipes, water leak detection systems can minimise the risk of expensive — and sometimes traumatic — harm to your property.
Just as it’s considered essential to install a smoke detector in your home, why should it be any different with water?
