We’ve been receiving an increased amount of inquiries regarding insurance companies now suggesting automatic flood stops. An automatic flood stop is a device installed at water services inside a home to prevent undetected water leaks from causing serious damage to a home. For example, the device can be installed at water heaters, washing machines, toilets, sinks, and refrigerators. Another feature of the automatic flood stop is the ability to integrate with home security systems to alert you if the water has been shut off due to a leak. This device would bring peace of mind to people who travel in between homes, or spend extended time traveling for business. By installing this device, one can conserve water, protect personal property, and may qualify for insurance savings.
