Water Heater Flood Protection System

One of the most common causes of household flooding is a problem with the water heater. Even professionals can have some difficulty identifying a problem with a water heater due to the fact that the outside will usually look fine even when there is a significant problem on the interior.

When water heaters do rupture or burst, they can pour out gallons of water in very little time. In order to protect yourself, install the early warning system from Innovative Basement Authority.

What It Does:

The water heater protection system is the answer for protecting your home from potential floods and leaks from a failing water heater. It’s a 4-inch high PVC ring that is sealed to your basement floor around the water tank.

If you have a perimeter drainage system, this ring can be connected to it, draining the water directly to your sump pump.

An optional Floor Alarm is also available, which is able to detect flooding water and sound off, giving you a warning right away.

On average, installing this system should take 15-30 minutes. Adding an alarm takes less than a minute — just place it within the ring.

Flood Protection For Your Water Heater

The #1 claim that insurance companies pay out on homeowners’ policies is water damage. Of these claims, damage related to water heaters is especially common. During the life of your home, your water heater will need to be replaced numerous times, with an average system lasting as little as seven years.

Because water heaters automatically refill themselves, when one leaks¬†that leak will be nonstop until you repair or replace it. In some scenarios, we’ve seen basements with feet of water due to a failed water heater system!

Installing a water heater protection with an Alarm is the best way to manage this problem. It’s an inexpensive addition to your basement waterproofing system that will someday pay for itself many times over.
