How to Specify a Leak Protection System for Your Next Project

How to Spec Plumbing Leak Detection

Why should you choose a plumbing leak protection system for your next job?

  • Solutions are available to monitor for leaks and control the water supply to individual appliances (water heaters/tanks, washing machines, dishwashers, HVAC pans, etc.), building plumbing subsections and entire structures. A variety of lead-free, full-port shut-off valve sizes are available.
  • Systems are reliable, easy to install and easy to use.
  • Prompt, live technical support is available for engineers, property managers and end users.
  • Dry output contacts are featured on most models to easily connect to building security panels, most smart home platforms or other cellular communication-type devices for automatic fault notifications.
  • State-of-the-art wireless systems are available to monitor for both plumbing leaks and low temperatures that could lead to frozen pipes. These systems feature battery backup and utilize a closed RF network that keeps communication going even if the building’s power, internet connection or local area network go down.
  • These automatic shut-off systems can be key components of modern “green” plumbing systems and water conservation efforts.
  • Insurance companies are requiring that these types of devices be installed, and customers are benefiting from reduced insurance premiums and less business interruption.
