I recently had a toilet leak (of course in the Master Bath on the top level) in an empty rental property. Estimate was it ran for about 1-2 days and it destroyed the ENTIRE house. Six figures $$ of damage. Luckily insurance company is looking like they will take care of everything. However, while it's a hassle for this situation at least the house was empty. I couldn't imagine if this happened in the home I live in with all of my stuff being affected and then needing to live somewhere temporarily while the house is rebuilt. (Estimate on rebuild is about 6 months).
So I went looking for a 'water sensor' and found this. I had it set up in a little over an hour. It really is about as easy as setting up a new app on your phone and pairing it with a set of bluetooth headphones. Would have been shorter, but I had to keep signing out of the app when I wanted to add a new sensor for some reason. No biggie once I figured out that hack. They probably have it fixed by now.
I show people the video and say "It's a ROBOT that shuts off your water!" How cool is that? Some people say, yea, maybe I'll shut off my water when I go away for the weekend. To which I reply, what if would happen moments after you leave for work that day? Imagine going into your upstairs bathroom. Pull the plug on your sink then turn on the faucet and walk away. Now imagine driving to work, having meetings, a lunch, drive home etc. and the water is running the WHOLE time. Imagine how much damage that would do. This thing shuts it off in like 5 seconds. No kidding.
I have now purchased two more whole complete sets for my other 2 rental properties. Just need to go and get them installed. If you're waffling; don't. Do it now!
