You can not talk about the consequences of flooding an apartment with cold or, even worse, hot water for a long time — everyone knows about it. Everything suffers: ceilings, walls, floors, furniture, electrics, household appliances and, of course, your nerves. And if, in addition to your living space, the neighbor’s also suffered, stress and expenses increase many times over.
Is it possible to avoid such troubles? One of the most effective ways (in addition to constant attention to the condition of pipes and plumbing) is to install a modern water leakage protection system.
There are different variants of such systems on the Russian market: cheaper and more expensive, more technologically advanced and simpler. But in general, the main principle of their work is as follows: in the event that “unauthorized” moisture gets on special sensors, the leakage protection system blocks the water supply for two to ten seconds and helps to avoid an accident.
