Install a Leak Detector in Your Home
With a leak detection system, you can manage your plumbing from any location, inside or outside your Maryland home.
A leak detector consists of a high-tech water shut-off valve installed on your main water line. It communicates water flow and pressure information to an app downloaded on your smartphone, putting plumbing data at your fingertips.
A smart leak detector not only monitors your plumbing but also shuts off your entire water system when it finds a leak, avoiding water damage to the structure of your Annapolis home and its contents.
If you prefer, you can shut your water off with the leak detector smartphone app.
At Mid-Atlantic Water Services, we recommend the StreamLabs Control shut-off valve. Our expert technicians improve drinking water quality for our customers by offering treatment solutions, including reverse osmosis, filtration, water softeners, and more. A high-tech leak detection system adds an additional layer of protection to your plumbing.
Why You Need a Leak Detector
Why would you want access to your plumbing 24/7?
The main reason is leak prevention.
Consider these statistics from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): The average household’s leaks waste more than 10,000 gallons of water annually. That is the same amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry. Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste approximately 90 gallons of water daily.
After spending the time and money to install a water treatment system in your Annapolis home, the last thing you want to do is compromise your water supply through leaks.
How Does a Leak Detector Work?
A leak detector typically monitors flow and water pressure. It learns your water use patterns and alerts you if it detects a deviation from the norm, such as a sudden decrease in water pressure, which might indicate a burst pipe, or a continuous flow of water, evidence of a small leak.
In addition to detecting water loss, this smart device offers a wealth of information about your water use. It helps you to pinpoint which appliances use the most water and what times of the day your water consumption is at its peak. It also may display water temperature, room temperature, and humidity.
StreamLabs Control not only detects drips in your walls and senses abnormal water use, but it is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It keeps track of your water use history and monitors room temperature, humidity, water pressure, water temperature, the amount of water used daily, and the state of the valve—if it is open or closed.
All you need is Wi-Fi and a smartphone to download the app. The device will continue to monitor your plumbing and can shut off your water automatically even when Wi-Fi is down.
Our pros at Mid-Atlantic Water Services can install StreamLabs Control in your Annapolis home and in the greater Baltimore/Washington area regardless if you own a well or are on city water. We maintain and repair leak detection systems in addition to installing them.
