We’re lucky that we don’t live in New Orleans circa 2005 when Hurricane Katrina swept through and destroyed the homes and livelihoods of thousands of people; we’re lucky we don’t live too near to low-lying beaches or in a place where tsunamis are a problem. For these people seasonal and flash flooding can be a major issue for the safety and well-being of their homes and businesses. We do live in one of the wettest climates in the United States, and often in old homes with aging pipes and we do need to be weary of water-related problems in homes and offices. Thankfully, Allied Fire and Security has the answer for you.
With the WaterCop Automatic Water Shut-Off System, you can be certain that flooding and water-damage done by aging, faulty and defective plumbing and appliances are no longer an issue. The WaterCop system helps to prevent damage done by water leakage by shutting off the main water supply to a home or business the moment it senses a leak. In addition, WaterCop can detect freezing temperatures (that might cause a pipe to burst with pressure) and shut off the main – this will help prevent damage in the event that the pipe does eventually burst.
This system is perfect for all homes, but is especially useful in buildings that are not always, fully occupied like vacation homes and businesses; and in places where a little bit of water damage can go a long way like in condos and high rise apartments, hospitals, and financial institutions.
It is always better to be safe than sorry in the event of broken pipes or a dysfunctional water main. You can talk to our consultants in one of our stores for more information on the WaterCop system and a breakdown of installation protocol and costs.
