Water Damage Prevention: Safeguarding Your Home with Smart Leak Detection

Water, Water, Everywhere

Water, a vital resource for life, becomes a significant threat to homes, leading to numerous insurance claims. According to the Insurance Information Institute, one in 60 homeowners files a water damage claim annually, constituting 20% of all homeowner insurance claims.

Expanding Risks: The impact of water damage extends beyond individual homes. Multi-family dwellings, rentals, and new constructions face potential challenges. Imagine residing in a condo, and a pipe bursts in the unit above yours while your neighbor is away; their nightmare becomes yours, affecting the property below, and involving the building management company.

Protection for Unoccupied Homes: Unoccupied homes, especially rentals, often experience substantial water damage due to open faucets and fixtures. Ensuring the protection of your water supply line becomes an invaluable investment.

Halting Water at the Source: The good news is that 93% of water leaks can be prevented. Strategically placed water leak detectors connected to a water shutoff valve play a crucial role in averting catastrophic water damage. Resideo’s innovative Braukmann L5 WiFi Water Leak Shutoff Valve, installed on your home’s water main, acts as a reliable safeguard for your possessions and the home’s structure, potentially saving you from costly repairs.

Functionality of the L5 WiFi Water Leak Shutoff Valve: The L5 Valve automatically shuts off your home’s water supply upon detecting water through a connected 5-foot sensor cable. Additionally, you can link multiple Resideo Water Leak and Freeze Detectors for extended coverage. The L5 sends instant alerts to your phone, enabling remote water management even when you’re away. The Resideo app serves as a comprehensive water leak detection control panel, offering customizable alerts and preset shutoff locations. This feature proves beneficial for second property owners or those coordinating with plumbing professionals.


Additional Benefits of a Water Management System:

  1. Air Handler Protection: Deploying water leak detection devices in or around condensation pans helps identify water damage threats in unconditioned spaces like the attic.
  • 2. Crawl Space Dehumidification: Utilizing a dehumidifier in a crawl space, coupled with a water leak detector, provides peace of mind, especially when the unit is not easily visible.
  • 3. Second-Floor Laundry Safety: Addressing the risk of water damage from second-floor laundry areas, a water leak detector promptly alerts you to potential issues.


Leak detection is crucial; a Braukmann L5 WiFi Water Leak Shutoff Valve empowers you to proactively protect your home and valuables from potential water damage expenses. Invest in this smart solution to fortify your defense against unforeseen leaks that could otherwise go unnoticed until substantial damage is done.
