Moisture Detectors Help Arrest Leaks
Water leaks and moisture intrusion can be devastating to you and your neighbors. Inexpensive moisture detectors, available at most large hardware stores and online for between $10 and $80, emit an audible alarm as soon as a leak develops.
To help catch water leaks and avoid moisture intrusion events, install moisture detectors at the backs of toilets, under kitchen and bathroom sinks, near refrigerator ice makers and under hot water heaters. Also, special plates placed under hot water heaters catch leaks, and special devices shut off the water and electricity to the tank when a leak is detected.
