Water Hero Saves A Home!
Prevent catastrophic damage and high water bills
On October 9th, 2017 at 10PM, a pipe burst in the ceiling of a doctor’s home in a small town on Staten Island while he was about to go away for the weekend. We know this is typical – 1 in 55 homes have a severe water leak each year in the United States, and this one had the potential to cause over $100,000 worth of damage.
But in this case – there was something different. This local doctor had the next generation Internet Connected leak detection and automatic water shut-off installed in his plumbing system – the Water Hero P-100. Water Hero quickly detected a leak, sending the doctor a text message when his user configured thresholds were exceeded and automatically shut off the water in the doctor’s home. The result was a 20 gallon leak instead of a 2,000
gallon leak. Family Heirlooms were saved and significant home damage was prevented!
Water Hero was designed to prevent damaging leaks like the one illustrated above but also helps building owners, property managers and homeowners to detect and prevent non-damaging leaks that drive up those monthly water bills. Time and time again, we hear people complain about the surprise water bill that runs $1,000 or more. Additionally, over 10% of homes have a leak of 90 gallons or more each day – which costs over $600 per year.
Water Hero highlights eroded toilet flappers, hoses left on, leaks in underground sprinkler pipes and irregular water use so that you can easily prevent those surprisingly high water bills and ensure that you are not flushing money down the drain. Many of our clients detect leaks immediately after installing Water Hero, leading to an ROI in months.
Here’s how we do it…
Water Hero is internet-connected and uses sensors to digitize flow information from a traditional water meter. When the water flow exceeds user set thresholds, Water Hero sends the user a text and/or e-mail and automatically shuts off their water. Water Hero also has a temperature sensor that can send you a text and/or email alert when you’re at risk of freezing and a back-up battery so that it functions when you’re building is most vulnerable – when the power goes out. Best of all, everything is controlled over the web or through your smartphone so you can easily change your settings, open and close your valve and more.
