When we leave our homes for work in the morning, we just assume that everything will be in the same order when we return. More frequently than you might think, that is not the case! An unattended home is vulnerable to a leak from a water heater tank, water filtration system, ice maker, washing machine hose or bathroom fixture – turning into a full-blown disaster as water flows unabated in your home for hours or even days! FloodMaster offers a complete line of Leak Detection and Alarm/Shut-Off systems to provide dependable flood control and peace of mind.

Many experts say that there is no sure way to know precisely when a water heater needs replacement. It's probably also the only appliance you bring into your home that you EXPECT to spring a leak at some point in its life!

When you factor in all of the other water-fed appliances in your home – washing machines, water filtration systems, aquariums, multiple toilets, sinks, bathtubs – why, it's enough to keep you up at night!
