What Are Water Alarms?
What are water alarms? Water alarms are designed to detect water and will simply sound an alarm, the sensors will give an early warning sign that a leak needs urgent attention. It does not however, stop the leak. Instead, it warns us about leaking pipes, defective water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines. A water alarm is also used to detect even the least amount of moisture before mold, mildew and a severe problem of water leak, thereby giving us ample time to move our belongings or furniture to safer – and drier – areas of the house.
You can install your water alarm in leak prone areas such as behind the washing machine, near bath tubs, toilets, dishwashers, water heaters and beneath sinks. It can also be used as a basement water alarm in case of flooding and for early leak detection. Almost all potentially harmful water flow starts from a small leak that has gone undetected. Placing water alarms in these specific areas will help prevent or at least limit the damage.
Water alarms do not only detect water leaks but also alert you when there is higher than normal moisture in the area that can lead to mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can lead to health problems and cause odors that are hard to control, and if it goes unnoticed it might cause a problem that is likely to incur significant costs.
There is also another type of water alarm that a professional plumber can install in your plumbing fixtures. This type of alarm will not only alert you if there is excess moisture in the area, but will also automatically turn on pipe heaters when the temperature drops down or drops below a certain level. Consult your local plumbers about this particular water alarm option.
