Plumbing Leak Detection Systems for Specifying Engineers

Specify water damage mitigation technology to protect your clients from the destructive effects of undetected plumbing leaks.

Indoor plumbing leak detection is a simple concept, but it is not a one-size-fits-all deployment. Specifying the right solution for your project requires an understanding of:

  • The potential water leak risks that are in play and what equipment needs to be monitored
  • System-related considerations such as access to piping and plumbing, appliances located in plenum spaces, and available electrical power
  • The required system response when a leak is detected – a simple alarm, automatic water supply shut-off, tie-in to BMS, etc.

Undetected indoor plumbing leaks can create costly insurance claims, rate increases, unhappy tenants, business shutdowns, and monetary fines from skyrocketing water bills. In fact, water damage is the #1 source of property losses for owners of offices, apartments and other real estate facilities.[1] Forward-thinking specifying engineers can educate clients and protect properties against damage from undetected leaks by employing cost-effective water leak detection technology.

Reliance Detection Technologies routinely works with engineers specifying leak detection for their projects. From wireless, app-based systems for wide-area monitoring to basic water alarms and kits dedicated to specific water-fed equipment, RDT provides reliable, easily deployed solutions for every space and budget.
