Imagine the diswasher leaking in the kitchen .... a burst washing machine hose ... or an overflowing bathtub .... How long would it take to discover the leak? And how much damage would there be?
Sure, there are complicated systems that can be connected with home monitoring. Now, there are water leak alarms that can be inconspicuously placed anywhere that could experience water flow if a leak went unnoticed, even for a few minutes. These new devices are inexpensive, small and quick to install:
- In the kitchen, beside the dishwasher and under the sink
- Upstairs in the bathrooms
- Along basement walls
The Honeywell Reuseable Water Leak Alams feature a sensor and loud audible alarm in one unit. They're available at most home improvement centres and online for a cost of about $15 - $30 depending on the model. Check out: yourhome.honeywell.com (click on safety and security) for more information.
For a few dollars more, Insteon offers a water leak sensor that can connect to a smartphone for text or email alerts. This sensor can also be connected to the Insteon lighting system for visual alerts too.
