Water Leak Detection Systems – How Do They Work?

July 26, 2021

An instant water leak detection system uses a sensor that is placed in an area that has a possibility of leaking such as a crawl space, SEMRAD basement, or laundry room. When water is detected or water flow is irregular, the valve will then automatically turn off the water supply in your house.

How does an instant water leak detection system work?

The two types of water leak detection systems are manual and automated. With the manual system, you will need to have access to the main water supply for it to work properly. You will also need to watch out for any evidence of water leaks like dripping appliances or fixtures. If any of these things are found, you will need to manually turn off the water supplies one by one.

The second type of water leak detection systems is an automatic water leak detection system. This kind of system does not require any access to the main line. If water is detected, it will be automatically shut down by the system. There is no need to worry about turning off the water supply when there is an alarm going off because there may be a leak somewhere.
