Water Leak Detector: Detect Water Leak And Protect Your Property

water leak detector installation by Leone Plumbing One of the main causes of property damage is water leaks. This problem is also causing crucial wastage of water resources. If not prevented, water leaks can foster the growth of molds. This can bring serious health concerns to any individual inside the property. For this reason, having a water leak detector is a wise move when it comes to leak detection.

Why should you consider installing a water leak detector?

If you care for your property and the people around you, you need to consider installing a detector for water leaks. Undetected leaks can cause terrible damage due to accumulated water. A small leak may further intensify into inconvenient water invasion incidents if not treated. But with the aid of a leak detector, you can spot water leaks in no time which help you in:
  • Conserving water resources.
  • Preventing the accumulation of molds.
  • Protecting furniture, appliances, and other important keepsakes from water damage.
  • Avoiding structural damages to the property.

Water Leak Detector Types

Water leak detectors come in various types depending on the technology. Here are the three main types.
Flow Meters
It reads the flow velocity, pressure, and vibration inside the pipeline. Any abnormal readings indicate escaping water from a leak. An analytics platform interprets the reading that helps to locate cracks so you can perform maintenance.
Acoustic Sensors
This system uses sound to locate leaks. The noise produced by water seeping through a fracture is captured by the system’s acoustic sensors. The size of a leak is determined through sound. If it captures high-frequency sound, it is interpreted as a small leak and vice versa.
Flood Sensors
This is the most common leak detector type.  A flood sensor triggers an alarm if the gadget came in contact with water. Other flood sensors have an option to adjust the level of water detection to avoid false alarms.

Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector

Aside from the mentioned main detector types, there are other types as well such as Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector. We mostly use Honeywell Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak And Freeze Detector. This gadget will alert you once it detects moisture and freezing temperatures. Its sensors can record the humidity and temperature of the area being monitored. When you are at home, you are notified by audible alerts or text messages if you are away. Leone Plumbing water leak detector installation

I originally contacted Leone Plumbing to address a sink faucet problem we were having at our new home, plus several other items. Jamison arrived on time and he was polite, professional and did an excellent job fixing all the items. I can’t say how much I appreciate his work ethic and that he respected our home as if it were his own. So much so that we went immediately back to Leone when we decided to replace our existing toilets. Andy was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, and I greatly appreciate his patience in working me through several options until we decided on how to proceed. In working with different service providers over the years, I'd highly recommend Leone Plumbing to take care of your plumbing needs, they are honest, professional, knowledgeable, very helpful and do excellent work!

Never used them before and had a great experience replacing a water heater. Old unit started leaking, so I called a few places late in the evening, got one service that answered right away but wasn't sure if they could get someone in the next two days (to be fair the were going to try and would have let me know). Andy got back to me before 8AM the next day and said he could get someone out to me within the hour. His price was good enough - not the lowest but certainly not the highest - that I didn't mind upgrading from a 40 to a 50 gallon tank (big family, lots of showers and laundry). Jamison arrived on time, was extremely polite, answered all my questions, and was very conscientious. My vent pipe didn't meet code anymore - had to go from 3" to 4" - so he walked me through what was needed to replace it and made sure I was comfortable. It was very important to him that I knew the what and why behind the work. He busted hump to get everything done quickly and even with the added work I had a working water heater shortly after lunch. Would use them again in a heartbeat.

Fantastic experience with Andy. When we were flooded out, though he was very busy already, he responded immediately and took the time to ask the right questions and diagnose the issue. He offered his immediate help and we are back up and running! Very professional and understanding. This will be the first place I call from now on for any work needed.
