IMPORTANCE OF RESIDENTIAL WATER LEAK DETECTION
The more time that passes with an undetected water leak, the more potential damage will take place. Unchecked water leaks may cause expensive and dangerous problems such as mold and fungi growth and damage to important home structures and household furnishings. A water leak detector is a device that detects the presence of water in an area where it shouldn't be, such as a basement, bathroom, or kitchen, ultimately helping to prevent the costly damage a leak would cause to your home and health.
HOW DOES A LEAK DETECTOR WORK?
There are several types of water leak detectors, but most work by using sensors to detect water and then sending an alert to a monitoring system or directly to the homeowner. Mechanical turbines or ultrasonic sensors are the most common methods of measuring water flow in residential water leak detection systems.
HOW DO I FIND OUT WHERE MY WATER IS LEAKING FROM?
It’s important to place the water leak detector in the right location. Typically, it should be placed in an area where water is likely to accumulate, such as near a water heater, washing machine, or under a sink. When in doubt, follow your senses. If you sense something off in your home that could indicate a water leak, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
HOW DO I USE A WATER LEAK DETECTOR?
Begin by moving the water leakage detector slowly – about three inches per second – over the area of concern, from low to high, noting specific areas where the leak controller stops beeping. Repeat this process until you are able to pinpoint the exact locations where water leaks may be occurring.
