Kinetico Inc. is venturing into leak detection with the release of its Leak Detection & Automatic Water Shut-Off System. Authorized, independent Kinetico dealers can now offer consumers a comprehensive and streamlined option for leak detection and damage prevention for homes and businesses.
Kinetico's Leak Detection System includes a Wi-Fi connected hub, sensors and a shut-off valve that is installed on a water supply. When a leak is detected, the valve shuts off the water supply within seconds to prevent water damage. Interaction with the system can be done on site or remotely via a smartphone app. Additional accessories like a Range Extender or Valve Cover are also available if needed.
Leak and flood damage is one of the most common homeowner insurance claims with high deductibles and $8,000 as the average claim. Many consumers want to avoid loss and the expense and frustration caused by water damage, and they are looking for leak detection options.
"Offering a leak detection system fits with Kinetico's desire to be THE choice for total water care," states Ted Jones, Kinetico's vice president of North American dealer sales. "Adding a leak detection system to Kinetico's water treatment product line makes complete sense. At Kinetico, we are in the business of improving lives through better water. That can mean protecting consumers from the damaging effects of hard, iron-laden water, or helping people prevent or minimize damage caused by water where it shouldn't be."
The Kinetico Leak Detection System is expandable and customizable, based on a consumer's needs. It's a ZigBee-certified product that continues to protect the home even when power is out. The system is compatible with major smart home systems such as Alexa, Google Assist and Nest. Backed by a five-year limited warranty, the Kinetico Leak Detection System offers consumers both protection and peace of mind.
