Louisville Water Leak and Freeze Detector Installation

While the possibility of a house fire is quite unnerving, the potential for water damage to occur is much higher and much more likely to occur in the average Louisville area home. Even in areas outside of flood plains, water leaks are a real threat to the condition of your home and the many belongings stored inside.

Water leaks occur linked to many different leak and freeze issues – frozen pipes, water heater leaks, loose pipe fittings, sump pump failure, and more. These Louisville plumbing issues have the potential to fill your home with many gallons of water, adding many more gallons for every minute the leak goes unnoticed.

It is critical to identify any leak and freeze early on to prevent severe damage throughout your home. A water leak and freeze detector helps Louisville homeowners avoid expensive water damage repairs and endless hours of cleanup.

Ask any homeowner and they’ll tell you smoke detectors are a must – but unfortunately, many don’t realize the importance of water leak detectors and freeze detector units, too. Using a network of smart water sensors and Wi-Fi connectivity, any escaped water in high-risk areas is found and homeowners are alerted via an app on their smartphone or device for early warning and fast mitigation of water leaks.

Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing performs setup and installation for water leak and freeze detector systems in homes throughout Louisville. With such a system in place, you will be notified any time a leak is detected, allowing for quick repairs to prevent major water leaks and water damage.


Water Leak and Freeze Detectors for the Home

When water leak detectors are installed throughout a home, the homeowner receives notification any time a leak is detected Whether a plumbing line leaks or frozen pipes burst, the presence of water is identified immediately. Via a connected app, homeowners receive alerts on a smartphone or device whenever the sensors detect water so they know repairs are needed right away. Minor leaks can be called out and corrected before they develop the potential to flood the home.

Water leak detectors and freeze detectors offer superior reliability for monitoring the plumbing system in your home. With leak detection systems in place, the risk of a sudden major water leak that causes expensive damage is drastically reduced, protecting your home and your valuables.

How Does a Leak Detection System Work?

A leak and freeze detector system works using a network of sensors equipped with water-sensing cables. The sensors are installed in areas of the home identified as potentially high risk for water leaks and damage – typically, these are areas with plumbing appliances with the potential to release large volumes of water should they fail.

The sensing cable detects electrical conductivity possible when water is present. Once a circuit is completed, sensors send the homeowner an alert via the app. Smart water sensors do not require smart home hubs or other technology, so they are fairly straightforward to set up. For ongoing reliability, these units have a long battery life of about two years. Additional cables can be added to a leak detection system to cover more areas of the home.

Professional alert monitoring may be available, or the homeowner can choose to receive alerts from the Wi-FI water sensors. When connected to an automatic shutoff valve, homeowners can turn off the water supply to the entire home when an alert is received, preventing the possibility of a major leak until repairs are effectively made.
