Water damage is an issue that affects millions of Americans each year. While flash floods and heavy rains are some of the more notorious contributors to water damage, some of the biggest threats to your home are actually within your walls. Pipe bursts, leaky appliances, failed water heaters, and faulty plumbing fixtures can all cause a significant amount of damage within homes. Smart leak detection systems provide the ability to stop leak-caused water damage before it happens. They can also be controlled and programmed remotely, allowing for easy access no matter where you are. Below, you can find more information on how a smart leak detection system can benefit homes and properties.
While many Americans have installed smart systems for their security, thermostats, and light fixtures, fewer have invested in a smart leak detection system to protect their homes from water damage. Water damage may seem like an issue that is only for those in flood-prone regions, but this is not the case. Burst pipes, appliance leaks, roof leaks, and ice dams can cause water damage in areas where flooding is uncommon. According to the Insurance Information Institute, about two percent of American households file for water damage insurance claims annually. This accounts for around 30% of all household insurance claims. A smart leak detection system, such as the floodstop v4 has many benefits that can help stop leaks before water damage is sustained.
