LeakSmart® Protects Home Builders from a Leading Cause of Insurance Claims: Damage from Leaks and Frozen Pipes

Check Out LeakSmart’s Smart Leak & Frozen Pipe Detection System at PCBC Booth #2538

BEDFORD HEIGHTS, OHIO (MAY 30, 2019) — LeakSmart®, the world’s most intelligent leak and flood protection system, is now available for the home builders’ market. Home Builders can learn more about LeakSmart on May 30-31 at the 2019 PCBC San Francisco show by visiting booth #2538.

LeakSmart is a whole home protection system that detects and automatically shuts off the main water supply when a leak is detected. LeakSmart offers two shut-off options: LeakSmart Snap, a proprietary valve controller that installs in seconds on any ball or gate valve without tools; and LeakSmart Cut-in Valve, a patented brass ball valve system that is installed on the main water line. The system supports up to 30 reusable water sensors that are placed throughout the home to detect leaks and includes the Hub 3.0 with battery back-up, making it the only leak detection system currently on the market with true 24/7 protection even when power or Wi-Fi is down.

LeakSmart also provides additional accessories, including range extenders and appliance kits, to provide added protection for builders.

According to Professional Builder magazine, home builders are among the toughest classes of businesses to insure and yet, according to The Hartford, damage stemming from water and freezing is one of the most common types of claims incurred by small businesses. And, according to the Insurance Information Institute, more than 2.6 million homes experience water damage every year, making it one of the leading insurance claims for homeowners.

“LeakSmart is whole house protection that detects leaks and frozen pipes and, in the event of a water leak, shuts off the water supply automatically and alerts the building management team all in less than 5 seconds,” said Larry Waxman, CEO of Waxman Industries, parent company of LeakSmart. “LeakSmart protects your property and reduces the risk to your bottom line before you hand over the keys to your customer. We are proud that LeakSmart is recognized as the leader in the smart home leak detection space.”
