What Do You Need to Prevent This?
The Leak Defense System®
Broken water line
In minutes, the water can spread to other areas of your home. In hours, pressed wood swells and begins to disintegrate. In winter, a flood from a bursting pipe can quickly freeze and cause catastrophic damage.
Undetected Slow Leak
Often undetected, this can cause electrical hazards, damage to your home’s structure and lead to mold growth. A slab leak is a perfect example. Slab leaks are almost impossible to detect without the Leak Defense System because there are usually no outward signs. An unidentified slab leak can cost thousands in wasted water and undermine a home’s foundation without any sign until it is too late.
Installs on your home’s

Your plumber or an authorized Leak Defense System plumber will install the main valve on your home’s incoming waterline. There’s a valve size to fit every application from ¾” to 3”. Once installed, it begins monitoring water flow 24/7 — catching even small leaks.
