Flood Detection Systems
A flood detection system can help protect you from one of the most damaging disasters you can face. Toronto has had a history of devastating floods; the Toronto Region Conservation Authority lists 42 separate “flood-vulnerable” areas in or near river valleys, including residential areas. Just a few inches of water from a flood can cause tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home. A flash flood can be devastating in mere minutes.
Of course, it’s not necessarily Mother Nature that causes water damage to your home. A faucet, accidentally left open, or a water heater tank leaking, can cause just as much damage. If there’s a leak while you’re gone for the weekend, damaged walls, floors and mold might be the least of your worries..
Engineered Alarm Systems is here to help. Our flood detection products will help keep your head above water.
If your house has a sump pump, our water-sensitive flood units will detect if the water level rises above a given threshold. That will inform you of the potential dangers, allowing you to react accordingly to prevent the malfunctioning sump pump from allowing a flood.
If your house does not have a sump pump, or if the potential flood is the result of a leak or open faucet, our water detectors, installed on the baseboards throughout your home, will report that a flood is starting in that area. That allows you to take timely action to help prevent a bigger leak, helping to minimize the damage.
Our experts will help you determine the scope of the system that best fits the specific needs of your property, and help you come up with a plan that fits your budget. When combined with our home automation system, you can shut off the main water valve remotely, preventing major damage.
