Mitigate Damage from Water Tank Leaks in Plenum Spaces: Reliance Detection Technologies

Reliance Detection Technologies

When water heaters and tanks are located in the space between a structural ceiling and a dropped ceiling, the damage caused by an undetected leak can be catastrophic. Reliance Detection Technologies (RDT) now provides an affordable, easy-to-install leak detection kit specifically designed to mitigate potential damage from water tank leaks in these plenum spaces.

The FloodMaster RS-094-MK6 leak detection and automatic shut-off system kit is designed to protect commercial and mixed-use buildings from water tank leaks in overhead areas. The kit includes a lead-free ¾-inch ANSI/NSF 61 Annex G shut-off valve, water sensor, actuator, step-down transformer and plenum-rated wires. When a leak is detected, an alarm sounds and the valve automatically shuts off the water supply to the tank. Like most RDT products, the system interfaces easily with most security, automation and “smart home” systems.

RDT delivers the most innovative and extensive selection of water leak alarm and automatic shut-off systems in the industry, with solutions for every type of facility, space and budget – from single-family homes, apartment buildings and condo complexes to office buildings and commercial properties. RDT offers additional water heater/tank leak protection kits that are tailored to other specific applications, including a solution for low-profile tanks and gas/electric cut-off functionality to meet local codes.
