How to Prevent Home Water Damage

Posted by

If you’ve ever had water damage in your home, it’s an experience you’re not likely to forget.

On the other hand, as time elapses, most people tend to forget what caused the water damage in the first place. What sticks in the memory is the mess that followed the water leak or intrusion, the amount of inconvenience and expense you experienced to get things back to normal and, worst of all, what cherished items might have been permanently damaged.

But now there’s a way to prevent water damage from leaking pipes anywhere inside your home – period. period.  And that’s with an emergency water shut-off system from Burton.

Here’s what it primarily consists of:

  • A shut-off valve that attaches directly to your main water valve.
  • Wireless sensors that can be installed anywhere in your home where a leak could possibly occur. These sensors communicate directly with the shut-off valve.
  • Freeze sensors to help stop damage caused by frozen pipes.

So, let’s say you’re away for the afternoon and happen to leave the washing machine or dishwasher running.  People do that all the time and usually with no adverse consequences.  But any time could be “that time” when something does go wrong…water starts leaking and, by the time you get home to stop it, major damage has already occurred.

With an emergency water shut-off system on guard whether you’re home or not, you can rest a whole lot easier.  That’s because the system’s sensors can detect even just a few ounces of leaked water.  When they do, a signal is sent to the shut-off valve which, in turn, immediately shuts off your water main.  No flow of water, no water damage.
