Why Plumbers Are Urging Home Owners To Invest In Water Sensors

One of the least commonly visited rooms in most homes is the boiler room, which also happens to be one of the places where floods and water leaks most commonly occur. That’s why North American plumbers are urging homeowners to invest in water sensor alarms that alert you via text or email the moment water leaks start to manifest, giving you the opportunity to check in on affected areas before it’s too late.

Water sensors save you money

Being notified in a timely manner allows for users to be able to prevent their small leaks from turning into extremely costly cases of water damage left unnoticed for weeks or months.

As we transition into the wet and muggy seasons, it’s important to take note of how rainfall may impact your home and  learn how to prevent your basement from flooding in addition to the most strategic places to keep water sensors in your home.

Combine water leak detection with home security

With the Piper smart home security system, you can extend your home security to include water sensors (among other accessories).

When you pair your Piper with a water leak sensor, you give Piper the opportunity to potentially save you thousands of dollars in damages- especially if you live in Florida, Alabama or New York; the three states with the most flood insurance claims.

In the past 5 years, all 50 states have experienced floods or flash floods, so this risk is not limited to people who live in particular areas – floods have the potential to affect us all.
