The Best Way to Prevent a Flood in Your Home
Do you know that you are seven or eight time more likely to have flooding in your house than to have a burglary? Yet, millions of people have a home security system to protect their families from intruders, but they have nothing to protect against a flood. Predictably, many companies are attempting to take advantage of this, and they now sell “leak detectors” for home flood prevention.
Moen, Stream Labs, and several other companies have developed leak detection products for sale, but many are inherently unreliable or so simplistic as not to be a viable solution. It’s also a fact that a leaking pipe, overflowing bathtub, and a hole in a water heater can cause a devastating flood in any home… and most homeowners have nothing but some insurance to prepare for it.
Do you think insurance can bring back those prized family photos or years of items you have collected? Can insurance bring back the memories and inconvenience? It is more than just the cost of those items, but the emotional costs that an insurance policy can't cover.
No, but US Water Systems Drop Technology can. DROP is a unique water management system. Using the Matrixx DROP Hub, DROP monitors water usage, and manages the water-related devices throughout your entire home. DROP can operate locally without an internet connection, or it also has the added ability to send mobile alerts using your home’s WiFi network. This advanced system can shut off water flow to your entire home automatically when it senses a risk and allows you to make decisions on the course of action after the risk has been mitigated—all from your mobile device.
Drop Technology is available as a stand alone leak detector or as parts of a complete Water Management and Treatment System.
