Nothing feels worse than turning on the shower in the morning and noticing the water refuses to warm up, only to check your water heater and find out it’s leaking. When this happens, you’re not only left to figure out how to replace or repair your heater but also how to minimize water damage from the leak.
Water heater failures are one of the top five reasons for residential water loss amongst toilet leaks, washing machine failures, drain failures, and sewer backup. By implementing smart plumbing technology such as sensors and alarms, you’ll protect your home and family from unfortunate water damage.
Smart plumbing technologies are systems which are put in place to detect and prevent plumbing failures in your home. From simply detecting a leaky faucet to notifying you of basement flooding, these systems will ensure your home stays dry and your plumbing systems function properly. There are two different ways in which a smart plumbing system can detect an issue:
Both types of smart plumbing systems have pros and cons, and we suggest using a combination of the two based on what will function best in your home.
As mentioned previously, smart plumbing can help you avoid major water damage due to a leak or system failure. These systems are also useful if you’re hoping to better understand your water usage, cut back on usage, or simply rest assured that your home is safe and secure. Smart plumbing technology is a wise choice for landlords and individuals with large homes because the system monitors your entire plumbing network and notifies you when an issue occurs, allowing you to be proactive when something malfunctions or breaks down.
We believe that smart plumbing is the next step in home development and efficiency, and we’re delighted to be a part of it. If you’d like to implement smart plumbing technology into your home, you can schedule an appointment with our team.
