Flood Detectors Protect Against Property Damage

July 18, 2011

We have all read the recent reports in the Media: 

  • ” A heavy rainstorm left a road under water on the west end in Eckvile, Alta., on Monday July 11, 2011 ” (Edmonton Journal)
  • ” Weather takes toll on city basements.  Heavy rainfall means mildew and floods ” (Edmonton Journal)

Did you know that damage in a home or business due to flooding is one of the top claims to insurance companies?

Just one inch of flood water can cause severe damage to your home or business!

Not only can water completely destroy precious mementos but it can also wreak havoc with structural items such as floors, walls and electrical systems.

Flood damage issues are very expensive to fix and can increase future insurance rates.

Early water detection can easily save on insurance claims and reduce the hassle of costly repairs.

Adding a Flood Detector to your Security System should be your first line of protection against property damage & property loss.

Having a Security System with a Flood Detector means you have an early Warning System that provides true Peace-of-Mind.

It does not matter if you have a wireless or hard-wired security system.  Adding a Flood Detector is very simple and inexpensive.  Everyone should have this early warning system in place!

A Flood Detector senses the presence of water in basements, laundry rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and numerous other areas where water may leak or flood, prompting advance warning of potential flooding.

Flood Alarms are usefull for business, your own home and seasonal cottages that are not occupied year round.  Flood Alarms will alert you to leaks, septic backup and overflow, broken pipes, power outages, cracked foundations and storm flooding.

Flood Detectors can also be integrated with a valve control unit that shuts off a given water line when prompted.

Although Flood Detectors will simply sound an alarm and not actually stop the leak, the sensors will give an early warning sign that a leak needs urgent attention.  This gives you some time to move valuable furniture and belongings out of the way.

When considering a Flood Detector, you want to make sure that it is immune to false triggers such as floor mopping.

Should the Flood Detector ever be damaged or tampered with (perhaps if the wire between the transmitter and the probe is cut), the Security System needs to be capable of identifying the trouble status immediately.

If you don’t have a Flood Alarm, don’t even have a Security System or have one that is not monitored, call me for a free, no-obligation consultation.  You will be glad you did!
