Water alarms are designed to alert you when water is where it’s not supposed to be, for example, your basement floor. This water could come from a variety of different sources, including an overflowing or broken sump pump, pipe leaks, or anything else. Once the water reaches the area it’s not supposed to be, the alarm goes off and the homeowner is notified.
Water alarms come in a few different varieties to suit different needs. Basic water alarms are the simplest type of water alarm. Once they detect water, they set off an alert to notify anybody in the house. Unfortunately, if nobody is in the house, nobody can hear the alarm. Dialer alarms solve this problem because they will call you to notify you if there is any water in the house. This way no matter where you are, you can be alerted of any issues.
If your home has a basement, installing a water alarm can be an easy and inexpensive way to protect it from damaging flooding and save you lots of money in the process.
