Who Needs WaterCop?
All property owners can benefit from the protection and peace of mind that WaterCop systems provide.
Property damage caused by aging and faulty plumbing costs property owners billions of dollars each year. Many valuables are difficult or impossible to replace, such as; artwork, antiques, computer data, photographs, and other heirlooms.
Water leakage and damage is the most common insurance claim. Every year nearly 2,000,000 homes experience severe damage due to common plumbing problems.
Insurance helps ease the burden of repairs but really can't replace your valuable property nor alleviate the hassles and anguish associated with a devastating flood loss.
Ideal locations to install WaterCop Systems include:
- Main Residence
- Vacation Homes and Villas
- Second Homes
- Rental Homes
How Does WaterCop Work?
The WaterCop System consists of two key parts:
- WaterCop electric valve
- WaterCop sensor network
The WaterCop electric valve should be installed on your main water line immediately after the existing manual shut-off valve or immediately prior to where the plumbing main begins to branch to "water appliances". When the valve closes, it protects everything downstream from possible flooding. The WaterCop flood sensors are battery (AC optional) operated flood sensor with wireless transmitters. Because they are wireless, you will not need to string sensor wires back to the WaterCop valve. Strategically place sensors in areas that you would like to continuously monitor for flooding.
WaterCop temperature sensors protect against burst pipes; and a Water Control Wall Switch gives everyone in your home a quick and convenient way to control the water supply. Together, these components work to protect your home against future losses and possible loss of insurance.
