Leak Defense Water Leak Detection
When thinking of water damage, our minds often conjure up images of burst water pipes, devastating roof leaks, or flash floods.
What perhaps needs some consideration is that water damage is often the result of a modest, undetected leak that slowly deteriorates the integrity of the home.
We recommend that each home plumbing system should operate a quality water leak detection system to prevent those unsightly grey watermarks on the ceiling which, left unattended, eventually become large gaping holes.
Beside ceiling damage, there are a host of other dangers that come with water leaks such as:
- electrical faults
- wooden floor damage
- damage of furniture
- damage of personal items
Mould is the most dreaded, and often deadly fungus that sometimes take up residence in a home that's harboring damp conditions.
What Does Leak Defense Actually Do?
The water leak detection units brought to you by Leak Defense System are connected and installed on the home's incoming water line. This means that the water system is monitored day in, and day out.
The constant surveillance being offered might not only save you thousands in water damage repairs, but will also save on water spending, as well as contribute to overall water consumption and conservation.
Also installed on the incoming water line, an automated shut-off valve empowers you to control potential water crises at home, or to give you sufficient time to investigate a water leak and have it addressed by a local plumber, as soon as possible.
Leak Defense System Features
This water leak detection system is a comprehensive solution that addresses the following challenges, with minimal inconvenience to yourself:
- The system was originally developed to identify and resolve pinhole and slab leaks. It is incredibly sensitive.
- While the system is managed via a state-of-the-art control panel, it can be made available to users via mobile app, for remote management while away from home.
- The system comes with a shut-off valve that is automatically triggered in the event of extremely unusual water usage.
- This world-class leak detection system is able to identify leaks that occur behind walls and inside ceilings, giving you a head-start in addressing leaks before they develop into a major crisis.
- By installing Leak Defense System, and setting up pre-set flow limitations that best suit the water usage in your home, you're able to monitor and control your consumption. This is good for you, good for your budget, and good for conservation of this precious resource.
How It Works: Customizing your Water Leak Detection Unit
The system runs on two basic active modes, being Home and Away. When setting these two modes up for your home specifically, you will need to understand the Time to Alarm function, and the Trip Rate.
Time to Alarm (factory setting: 5 minutes)
If, for example, your daily shower takes you 15 minutes, your Leak Defense System alarm is going to start alerting you of in-home water consumption within 5 minutes.
You will need to set your Time to Alarm to a more realistic 20-minute period. This would apply for your Home mode, while you might consider keeping the factory-setting 5 minutes for your Away mode.
Flow / Trip Rate (factory setting: 10%)
Setting the flow and trip rate in your home can be a matter of trial and error – begin by opening a faucet and watching the bar graph on your Leak Defense System panel to see what percentage that flow is.
Then, slowly close the faucet and compare how this affects the flow rate displayed on your system graph.
Each home is different – while most homes settle at an average trip rate of 7%, those with concerns about small leaks might set their trip rate as low as 3-4%, at least in Away mode.
