Whole house water leak detection systems with automatic shut-off

Learn how to help prevent costly water damage and the different water leak detection systems with automatic shutoff valves available on the market today.

Floods aren’t the only way water enters a home and causes damage to the foundation, the drywall and your property. Water damage is also not limited to basement flooding. It can happen in a bathroom, laundry room, on the first floor or on the second floor. Regardless of the cause, a water leak detection system could help safeguard your home and prevent damage from water leaks.

How does a water leak detector work?

An automatic water shutoff valve device detects potential water leaks by either monitoring flows in the pipe or by detecting water on the floor. When flow is irregular or moisture is detected, the valve will automatically shut off the water supply to your home. This may help prevent a significant amount of the damage that water leaks can cause.
