Detect leaks in your water supply
Detecting leaks early, helps you avoid damaging your building from leaking water and water waste, so you can find the leak in time to fix it, by non-intrusive methods like epoxy lining.
The alarms are calculated once a day, at 6 a.m. UTC time.
Configurations: The included alarms are added automatically if you select the unit type "water pipe" when the unit is registered on ReCalc. No other configurations are needed.
Sensors used: FlowMoniSpot
Installation: See installation instructions under FlowMoniSpot.
Note: Please remember that no surveillance is perfect in all cases: it means that in rare cases, the system might not identify a leak, and in in some rare cases, it will warn you even when no leak is present.
If a leak alarm is raised, but you doubt it's real:
Take a look and see if a toilet is running or a tap is dripping. If so, it might be you leak, and a good thing is to avoid spilling water, and enable monitoring of more harmful leaks.
Try to close the main valve, and see if the temperature reading off the pipe gets close to the temperature reading of the surrounding air.
If temperature reading of the pipe never reaches three degree Celsius of the reading of the surrounding air, your pipes are likely to have a leak.
