Get Smart: Protect Your Home From Water Damage With A Smart Valve

Did you know that one of the most common causes of water damage in the home comes from broken pipes? When this occurs, you could be left with thousands of dollars worth of damages, and even if you file an insurance claim, you could lose possessions with emotional value. 

The best way to protect your home from water damage is to take a proactive approach. Once a pipe starts leaking, it can sometimes be too late to stop the ensuing damage — that’s where the smart valve comes in.

Smart valves are a breakthrough innovation that stops water damage before it starts. The system is made up of two components: one monitors for water leakage, while the other is on standby to automatically turn off your water line if trouble is suspected.

Let’s take a look at how a smart valve can benefit residential or commercial properties.

Automatic Shutdown

When water pipes fail, you know to shut off the water supply to your property ASAP! But what happens when nobody is home for an extended period of time? You come back home to a water-filled home. 

When you install a smart valve, you can have peace of mind that your system, along with its water meter, will stop any water flow and directly alert your phone of any issues. 

Better Investment

While a smart valve can be expensive, it is money well spent. When water enters your home from broken pipes, it can travel everywhere from inside your basement walls to your kitchen. The costs associated with burst pipes are significantly higher than the cost of buying a smart value, especially if you lack homeowners insurance. By minimizing damages to stop leaks and water damage, your smart valve is a better investment through and through.

Reduced Consumption

Smart valves can do more than just protect your home from water damage. Select models are also designed to reduce water pressure in high-PSI plumbing systems. Not only does this help save money and water, but it also helps reduce problems related to high water pressure, such as:

  • Plumbing leaks
  • Worn down seals
  • Damaged plumbing fixtures

Advanced Features

Smart valves come with a variety of features, such as being able to connect to your smartphone. Through the app, you can check different reports on water consumption and energy use in your home. Some systems also have flood sensors that can be installed to detect when water hits the surface of your home.
