Flood alarms are useful in seasonal cottages that are not occupied year round because they will alert you to leaks, septic backup and overflow, broken pipes, power outages, cracked foundations and springtime and storm flooding.
Although many North Americans only experience flooding during springtime, devastating floods occur in the United States every single year and are considered the number one natural disaster in the U.S. in terms of death and property damage. When it comes down to it & flooding is a global concern. Whether you're in a flood risk zone or not, just one inch of flood water can cause severe damage to your home.
Installing a flood alarm will help monitor leak prone areas in your home or cottage as well as alert you to damaging water accumulation or internal flooding. Flood alarms should be installed near sump pumps, washing machines, kitchen plumbing or anywhere flooding is a possible.
