Avoid Water Damage Losses

Water Damage

Water damage losses can happen in any season and the process of restoring your home after a water loss can take months. Worse than the inconvenience is the potential for damage to irreplaceable belongings such as photographs, artwork and other valuables.

Every home has potential sources of water damage:

  • Failure of water supply lines to appliances, sinks, wet bars or toilets
  • Burst pipes due to age, freezing or disrepair
  • Water heater failure
  • Plumbing or appliance failure

Automatic Water Shut-off Devices

Take action now to help prevent future water damage and the headaches that come with them.

Many water losses can be prevented or mitigated by an automatic water shut-off device. This device constantly monitors water flow through your home’s pressurized plumbing system and automatically shuts off the water if a leak is detected, preventing further damage.
