Protection Against Leaks and Floods
Plumbing pipes and devices are incredibly sturdy, but they are known to leak from time to time. Plumbing leaks can occur due to corrosion, lack of maintenance, and even age. These types of leaks tend to happen when we least expect them–in the middle of the night, weekends, and even when we are out of town. When leaks aren’t repaired or seen on time, they can result in extensive damage to your plumbing and property. If you want to ensure your home is protected from water leaks, sump pump failures, water heater leaks etc. Call on the professionals at Absolute Precision Plumbing and Heating.

How Does LeakSmart Work?
There are multiple places in your property that can leak, the water heater, sinks, washing machine, dishwasher, and more. In order to reduce your property damage or Insurance claims due to water leaks that weren’t detected on time, LeakSmart has developed a device that is able to sense leaks and shut off your water main in 5 seconds or less. How does LeakSmart work? What every property will need is a LeakSmart cut-in valve, hub, and sensors. The cut-in valve is installed on the water main, then the LeakSmart sensors are placed in particular areas that are prone to water leaks. The Hub is then used to link the cut-in valve, sensors and your app all together, when any sensor detects water it will send a signal to the LeakSmart cut-in valve to shut off the water.
The hub is the main communicator between the sensors and the LeakSmart cut-in valve, if for some reason your power or internet goes out, the hub will still be able to work. Another cool feature about LeakSmart is that you are able to receive notifications via the LeakSmart app that you download on your smartphone. Not only will this device shut off your water, but it will alert your phone via a text or email when it does.
