Proactive Measures for Water Security with Water-Protec
1. Comprehensive Home Inspection: Prior to departure, conduct a thorough inspection of your home's plumbing. Look for leaks in faucets, toilets, and appliances, addressing any issues promptly. This step is crucial in preventing water damage in your absence.
2. Gutter Maintenance: Clear gutters and downspouts of debris to ensure proper water flow away from your home. This simple task can significantly reduce the risk of water-related issues.
3. Main Water Supply Management: Consider shutting off the main water supply to prevent leaks. Water-Protec’s smart valves offer remote control, allowing you to manage your home’s water supply from anywhere.
4. Pipe Care: In colder climates, protect your pipes from freezing by draining outdoor plumbing and insulating exposed pipes. Water-Protec’s sensors can monitor temperature changes, adding a layer of protection against frozen pipes.

8. Advanced Monitoring with Watchdog: With Water-Protec’s Watchdog service, enjoy 24/7 monitoring of your water security system. This feature ensures immediate professional response to any detected water-related issues.
9. Thermostat Settings: Set your thermostat to maintain a stable indoor temperature, preventing pipes from freezing and reducing the risk of humidity-related damage.
10. Appliance Safety: Unplug non-essential appliances and turn off water supplies to prevent leaks and conserve energy.
11. Community Support: Inform trusted neighbors or friends about your absence and ask them to keep an eye on your property. They can be invaluable in identifying issues early.
