Water Leak Detection Systems for Condos & Apartment Buildings

Undetected plumbing leaks can quickly spread and cause a nightmare for tenants and managers of multi-unit residential properties.

Affordable plumbing leak detection and water damage mitigation technology is a smart investment for managers of multi-family housing, apartment buildings and condominiums. Undetected leaks can lead to major headaches as water quickly spreads across multiple units, displacing tenants and causing thousands of dollars in damage.

Because large numbers of units are constructed at the same time, plumbing fixture and water heater failures tend to run in batches and cause damage across multiple units. The hassle of handling the cleanup, mold remediation and required repairs pales only in comparison to irate owners and tenants. When multiple water failure claims occur in quick succession, insurance companies are quick to increase rates or even drop coverage altogether.

ConcernUndetected Plumbing Leaks Lead to…
Increase RevenueVacancies during repairs; tenant complaints and poor reviews
Keep Quality Tenants HappyDisplacement, constant repair work and unpleasant living conditions
Control CostsSubstantial cleanup and repair costs, including possible code compliance updates in older buildings; increased insurance rates or loss of coverage

We will help you outfit your multi-unit building with the correct combination of water leak detection sensors, alarms, notification systems and automatic shut-off valves to give you and your tenants the peace of mind that minor issues will not spiral into complete catastrophes.
