What is a Water Alarm and Why Do You Need One?


Water alarms are made to detect water leaks, overflowing or broken sump pumps, or leaking hoses. That could come in handy, especially if you’ve spent a small fortune finishing your basement. Even if you haven’t, a water alarm can help you avoid serious issues, which can include anything from property damage to mold and mildew.

Ideal Locations to Install Water Alarms:

Attic – Water alarms in your attic can quickly alert you to a roof leak. Otherwise, you may not notice the damage until it is extensive.

Near a Washing Machine – A busted hose can do a lot of damage in short amount of time.

Bathrooms & Kitchens – It could be a leaky pipe or someone simply forgetting to turn off a faucet. Either way, you’re prepared.

Other locations include under cabinets, in basement corners or near your water heater. Think about your home and all of the places where a water alarm can stand guard against water damage. When choosing your water alarm, you will have several options from a simply battery-powered alarm, to an alarm that can be integrated into a mobile application through your wi-fi.
