Water Leak Alarms

A Water Leak Alarm is a type of electronic equipment that will send you a warning if it comes into contact with damp, moisture or water.

It is very similar to the way a smoke detector works, accept it is for damp. Damp alarms are often referred to as leak alarms, automatic damp sensors, or electronic automatic damp or leak detectors. They can be found in any domestic or commercial building to signal occupants to the presence of damp or water quickly to ensure potential damage can be reduced by addressing the source as soon as the issue is found. The basic idea is that they will alert the user to leaks before any major damage occurs.

They are usually about the same size as a smoke alarm and the batteries can be changed in the same way. These water leak alarms or damp alarms have sensors located on the feet or side of the case, that are calibrated at the time of setting up to accept the current surface moisture content levels as normal, and, only if this moisture content is surpassed, will the Water Leak Alarm go off.

This alarm is normally higher than 80 decibels: Which is about the same level as a vacuum cleaner, if you are the one carrying out the hoovering. Call us right now to get a zero cost quote for your water leak alarm supply and installation.

How Does a Water Leak Alarm Work?

Damp alarms typically run off of batteries. We also offer wired and automated Water Leak Alarm systems or leak alarm systems that can be integrated into your smoke or fire safety systems (if you have these).

However, for basic, low cost water alert systems, the units that we can provide and install without planned works and without wiring into an existing system or augmenting the electrics to provide a power supply, are battery powered.

The sensor on a damp alarm system can be found to the side of the case or on the feet as stated previously: it includes a pair of thin cables, spaced a small length apart. When ever damp comes into contact with the two wires, the resistance among the 2 is lower, enabling the current to travel through the circuit to the buzzer, that’s triggered and alerts anybody in proximity to the leak.
