Water Leak Detector

Water Leak and Freeze Detector for Cincinnati, Ohio

You can protect your Cincinnati area home from leaks and water damage by installing a wi-fi water leak and freeze detector.

Many people think fire is the greatest risk to a home, but your insurance company would probably tell you that water is much more commonly the cause of property damage, even for homes that aren’t in an area that typically floods. Water damage can come from many sources, including:

  • a burst pipe
  • a clogged toilet
  • a failing water heater
  • a broken supply line under sink
  • a split hose connected to washing machine

Like a smoke detector, a water leak detector installed in places where water damage typically starts can save you from disaster. Catching leaks and freezes early is the best way to prevent expensive repairs and damage to personal items. We recommend placing leak detectors near potential trouble spots like sump pumps, water heaters, washers, and sinks. Your leak detectors can each be individually named and registered in an app you install on your mobile device. If a pipe starts to freeze or a leak is detected, the app on your phone will alert you – no matter where you are. The Home app offers step-by-step instructions for connecting and setting up your Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector. It’s easy and simple to set up!

What Is a Water Leak and Freeze Detector?

A water leak detector is a device that is connected to your home’s Wi-Fi that detects leaks or frozen pipes. If a leak occurs or a pipe freezes, your water leak detector can alert you using an app installed on your smartphone. You’ll know about leaks and frozen pipes in your home before the problem gets out of hand. You can fix a problem you might not otherwise have seen before a frozen pipe bursts or a small leak becomes a flood.

The leak detector is battery-operated, with the battery lasting around two years. It’s wireless with no need for a hub or base station for it to connect to your network either, keeping everything is nice and simple. Installing a water leak detector can greatly reduce the chances of you coming home to expensive water damage.

How Does a Water Leak and Freeze Detector Work?

A water leak detector measures the electrical conductivity of any water present and completing a circuit to send a signal. Some are monitored by a professional alarm company. Others send a notification directly to the homeowner using a mobile app. In this case, your smartphone becomes command central, allowing you to turn your water off from wherever you are (assuming you’re connected)! You can also check your home’s water usage and contact a plumber with the app to come take care of any problems. Some water leak detection systems can automatically shut off water for you if disaster strikes.

Should You Buy a Water Leak and Freeze Detector System for Your Cincinnati Area Home?

Prevention is the key to avoiding costly water damage in your home. A water leak detector will catch and stop leaks before they cause major damage. With a water leak detection system, you also get full transparency into your home’s water usage. Water damage can happen in any home, at any time. If you want to avoid costly repairs or loss of personal items from leaks or burst pipes, we recommend installing water leak and freeze detectors in your home.
