Water Leak Detection

Water leaks in the home can have devastating effects on the property, leaving behind warped tiles and rotted wood, costing hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs. Water damage comes from a number of different sources, some of which are related to roof leaks and extreme weather and others which are associated with plumbing issues. Unfortunately, water leaks are sometimes difficult to detect right away, often causing serious damage before they are finally detected. However, if your home has been damaged by a water leak, there are ways to protect your home against further damage in the future with leak detection systems.

If your home has been damaged by water leaks, you should be able to depend on your home insurance to assist you in paying for repairs. Unfortunately, insurance companies are increasingly prone to denying claims in bad faith. If your insurance company has underpaid or denied your legitimate water damage claim, contact the Dallas insurance attorneys of Smith Kendall, PLLC, today at 214-361-6124.

Leak Detection Systems

There are several different ways to detect water leaks in the home before they cause damage. The following are some of the systems which are used to detect leaks early on:

  • Passive Leak Detection Systems – Using moisture detecting technology, these systems use an alarm to alert homeowners of potential water leaks. These are usually battery-operated and easy to install in individual areas.
  • Active Leak Detection Systems – These use an alarm to alert homeowners to a leak and stop the flow of water.
  • Individual Appliance Leak Detectors – Can be installed on appliances, such as refrigerators and water heaters, and can shut off the supply of water automatically.
  • Whole-House Leak Detectors – These systems are used on main water supply lines and can detect leaks throughout the house. When a leak is detected the main water supply is shut off.

If you have suffered a water leak before, installing a water leak detector is a great way to protect your home from future damage.
