HI-TECH LEAK DETECTION SYSTEM
AKWA* Water Alarm detects and controls water leaks without any intervention. It monitors your property day and night.
SOME EXAMPLES OF LEAK DETECTION KITS
1 Vacancy sensor
1 Motorized valve
Better be safe than sorry...
The majority of water leaks happens when you are not at home. The best protection to avoid them is simply to close the Master valve when you are away from home.
In a “Prevention mode” the AKWA* Vacancy sensor detects if the occupants are absent. The Master valve will close after a set-up time to prevent any water leaks. It will automatically reopen when you are back home.
1 Vacancy sensor
1 Motorized valve
3 Detection rulers (washer, dishwasher, water heater)
3 Single sensors (toilet, vanity, kitchen sink)
1 Flow sensor to detect leaks in walls
1 Web control platform
If a leak is detected AKWA takes action immediately
In a “Complete protection mode”, AKWA* Wireless leak sensors are added in risky areas such as: washer, dishwasher, hot water tank, HVAC, toilets, sinks, fridge ice-maker, in order to detect any water leaks and provide a complete protection.
As soon as a puddle is detected, the AKWA* Wireless leak sensor sends an alarm signal to the Water Alarm controller, the Master valve closes and the leak stops. You will then be notified by email or text message and the worst has been avoided!
Flow sensors are designed to detect invisible leaks in walls and will complete your protection. Many Cities in Alberta have very hard water which act like sandpaper inside pipes, a Flow sensor is a must.
The complete kit constantly scans 6 high risk zones in your house. In the event of a leak, AKWA* takes action and closes the water valve and sends you an alert immediately. Additional sensors can be added to fit your property.
Our professional advisors will help you determine the best configuration for your needs.
