Water, Water Everywhere

Here’s a story for you

A friend of ours had recently spent quite a bit of money renovating their office. Over the weekend the dishwasher hose in the kitchen broke. The water ran for the entire weekend, flooded the office ruining all the carpets and caused nearly $100,000 in damages. It could just as easily been a homeowner’s second floor washing machine causing water damage

How could he have prevented it?

The Burns & McBride Smart, Safe Home system can have a “Home Disaster” monitor installed on it for less than $100. This monitor would have alerted my friend to the fact that water was streaming onto the floor.

For a very modest investment, he could have added a motorized valve to the system which would have shutoff the water to the building once the alarm sounded.

This video explains how this valve works
