A leak may lead to serious damage in a variety of ways. Watersavers has a range of products to prevent water leaks. In recent years the use of a electronic water leak detector has become increasingly more effective.
Statistics show that the most likely cause of insurance claims in hotels, retail premises and commercial buildings is water damage, costing the UK insurance market in the region of £800 million.
The cost to a business
The cost to businesses due to water leakage can be significant and it is not just the obvious physical damage to IT networks, electronic equipment, plant, fixtures & fittings, stock and the fabric of the building. Like fire damage, even a seemingly minor water leak can result in temporary relocation, loss of working hours, and loss of profits. Therefore a highly reliable electronic water leak detector, providing vast coverage, is value for money.
The financial market is particularly sensitive to these potential losses with Data Centre outages costing such businesses an average of £12,000 per minute, hourly losses on the Stock Exchange of around £4.5 million and Credit Card Clearance around £1.8 million. A electronic water leak detector is essential to prevent these losses.
Electronic water leak detection
An electronic water leak detector is comprised of 3 primary components: a water leak detector cable, the cable itself a sensor, a sensor interface module which will be placed in particular area itself, and a main control panel which connected to Siren/Hooter and autodialer. In simple terms, if any one of the system’s sensors detects water, it will send a signal to the control panel which in turn arm the siren/hooter and trigger the autodialer. The whole process occurs within a couple of seconds. With the timely intimation, a potential disaster has been averted, saving the devastation, expense, and headaches of flood damage and insurance claims.
