Water leak detection - Commercial water shut off valve

How to keep your place of business from water damage

A seemingly minor water leak can turn into a full flood very quickly, leading to business disruption and obscene repair costs. The scary part about water leaks is that they can go undetected for hours or days, and by the time you discover it, it’s too late. Water leaks could force you to close your business for days or weeks during renovations, or even necessitate a relocation. Either way, your finances, employees, and relationships will suffer.

For example, Ferro Environmental found that mold can form within 24 to 48 hours of minor water damage, and the average mold remediation for a 1,500 sq. ft. space can cost upwards of CAN$8,700.

Thankfully, water leaks are usually avoidable. Installing a commercial water control system is a major preventable step in the right direction. They’ll save you time and money in the long run.

How does a commercial water control system work?

If you spring a leak, our water sensors, strategically placed around your business, will warn you with a notification, tell you where the leak comes from and shut the water valve at the same time. This way you'll have plenty of time to go check the leak yourself, correct the situation and open the valve again manually or from your phone.

The water cutoff system is also connected to the Stanley Security central unit, so our experts can warn you if an alarm goes off. The system detects low temperatures to prevent burst pipes (4C or less), providing year-round peace of mind to small business owners. An added benefit of having a water leak detection systems can be seen in your insurance premiums, as many insurance companies recognize water leak detection systems as a feature worthy of a price-break.

Water leak detection is a must-have technology for your business

Increasingly, water leak sensors and water shut-off systems are viewed as needs for business owners. Regardless of what type of business you run, certain areas of your workplace pose a danger for water leakage. Employee break rooms and restrooms are often overlooked as potential culprits, but toilet and faucet leaks are a very common problem. Because these common areas are so heavily used, plumbing components like rubber washers wear down quickly, causing leaks. This technology will protect you against property damage, business interruption, and ballooning insurance premiums. Don’t let your hard-earned business go down the drain.
