Fort Myers, Florida -- Dryout, a nationwide network of water damage remediation professionals, recently announced their partnership with Sentinel Hydrosolutions. Mark Decherd, Dryout’s president, said, “After all, what better way to keep your home dry than to actively monitor water flow and shut off the water should all signs point to a disastrous water leak? Not only will you save on your water bill, you’ll minimize water damage.”

The system monitors the home’s water flow rate and automatically notifies the homeowner or a third party monitoring company when the flow rate exceeds pre-set limits. The Leak Defense System will also shut off the water supply thus preventing further damage. Fully programmable with an intuitive touch screen display, the Leak Defense System is hooked to a telephone auto dialer and programmed with emergency phone numbers, such as a cell phone or office number, to be alerted to a potential leak while away from home. 

Should a pipe burst, the water heater topples over, or some other plumbing calamity occurs, the water will be immediately shut off and the emergency number dialed.

Decherd said, “You’ll still have a bit of a mess on your hands but the water damage will be minimal compared to if you didn’t have this system. Whether or not you have the Leak Defense System installed, Dryout will come out and mitigate the damage.”
