I’ve been helping my dad manage some of his investment properties as of late. A few months ago we had a severe rain storm which caused some flooding here in Salt Lake. Unfortunately one of his properties flooded overnight which caused major headaches and $$$ in repairs.
Recently Delta Faucet came out with a new device that can detect leaks or flooding immediately when they happen.
I was all ears.
Delta calls it their Water Leak Detector and is approximately the size of a donut.
It works by syncing the device to your phone. You then place it anywhere that might be prone to leaks (bathroom, under a sink, near a water heater, washing machine, basement, etc). If the device gets wet, an alert is immediately sent to your phone then notifying you that a leak has occurred.
I can’t tell you how much we wished we had one of these Leak Detectors in all my dad’s properties. The device cost is a little over $100. Small price to pay in comparison to how much damage to property a flood costs.
Now for some exciting news. Delta Faucet is running a sweepstakes where you could win a Water Leak Detector. All you have to do is post a photo or video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #LeakDetectSweepstakes and tag @DeltaFaucet. Each week throughout November, four winners will be rewarded with a Delta leak detector, and be featured on Delta’s Inspired Living blog.
