Homeowners across the country were recently introduced to exciting, easy-to-use technology to protect against undetected plumbing leaks as Ask This Old House featured the wireless RS-360 system from Reliance Detection Technologies (RDT).

It takes just minutes for leaking water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers to inflict substantial water damage on a property. If a home or business is unattended or a leak goes otherwise undetected, water can continue to pour in and cause catastrophic damage. In episode #1603 of Ask This Old House, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey discussed the protection offered by the RDT RS-360 with host Kevin O’Connor, demonstrating how the system’s smart valve automatically shuts off the main water supply within seconds of water being detected by a wireless sensor – keeping potential water damage to a minimum and alerting the property owner that there is a problem.

The RS-360 offers an additional level of protection as its sensors also detect near-freezing temperatures that could cause pipes to burst. When a leak or low temperature is detected, the system shuts off the water supply, sounds an alarm and sends a signal to a building automation, security or smart home system – all within seconds.

RDT delivers the most innovative and extensive selection of water leak alarm and automatic shut-off systems in the industry, with solutions for every type of building, space and budget – from single-family homes, apartment buildings and condo complexes to office buildings and commercial properties.
