Leak Detection and Flood Prevention


11/7/2018

The LeakBreaker, a water heater leak protection device that guards against flood damage from a leaking water heater, is now available with Taco Comfort Solutions’ eLink wireless technology.

The unit consists of a control unit, a valve with actuator, a sensor and Wi-Fi capability, enabling status alerts to be sent directly to a user’s mobile device whenever a change occurs.

This resettable, testable protection device can be installed on any style water heater to shut off incoming water supply, preventing additional water flow to a damaged water heater. The two-color LED light and audible alarm provides continuous LeakBreaker status. Alerts are now also sent via text or email.

The unit’s plumb and plug design – with full-port valve and easily-removed actuator – is engineered to permit new or retrofit installation. Components are pre-wired to simplify installation; just plug in the sensor, valve, power supply and/or batteries. LeakBreaker can be tested any time, and then be reset to guard against a future leak.
