The Hydrocom system provides the ability to detect water leaks by remote sensors placed in up to 32 locations throughout the home. Houses can have small, slow water leaks that build up over time, destroying wood, tile and carpet flooring. The sensors in this system provide a radio frequency signal to the controller to shutoff water to the home. The signal from the controller is sent to the actuated ball valve and whole house shutoff occurs within seconds. This water-leak detecting system is available from the Apex Supply Company.
