Protecting Against Leaks in Your Commercial Building
Maintenance and repairs make up one of the larger expenses when it comes to running a commercial building. Property managers are usually diligent about regular maintenance of systems such as air conditioning. Keeping on top of maintenance of systems can save money in the long run. However some systems, such as water, can easily be overlooked. Protecting against leaks in your commercial building is critical. Leak detection begins with having alerts in place.
Why You Need to Protect Against Leaks
Water leaks may start off small, but they can cause a lot of problems. For starters, when water gets into areas it’s not supposed to, it can cause damage. Even a small leak can cause a large amount of damage to the surrounding woodwork, and before you know it you must make expensive repairs on your walls, ceilings, or floors.
The other reason you need to protect against leaks is that they lead to poor water pressure. When water pressure isn’t consistent throughout your building, it can put a strain on your entire system. This, in turn, will lead to your appliances not working well or causing them to break down. By addressing leaks early, you can actually extend the life of everything connected to your water system.
How to Monitor and Protect Against Water Leaks in Your Commercial Building
The biggest issue when it comes to protecting against water leaks is that you often don’t know you have them until it’s too late. This is where the Water Pilot can help. The Water pilot is an NSF-61 certified device which is installed directly within your water system. From there is constantly monitors your water system and will send alerts to connected smart devices if it detects any issues within the system.
Not only that, but the Water Pilot can also lower your monthly utility bills. Most water systems have pockets of air within them, but your water meter can’t tell the difference. The Water Pilot compresses these water pockets so they can pass through the water meter undetected, making it more accurate.
Don’t Let a Small Leak Cause a Major Problem
Running a commercial property is difficult and expensive enough without a tiny water leak causing a big problem. Take one more thing off your plate and have the Water Pilot monitor your system for you. That way you can address a leak as soon as its detected, all while saving money on your monthly utility bill.
