All About FrontPoint’s Water & Flood Sensors

Posted by , , at 7:00 am

In the wake of natural disasters like Sandy and Katrina, horrific images of flood devastation are fresh in our minds. At FrontPoint we sincerely hope none of you has to endure the kind of loss those storms can bring.

We can’t stop Mother Nature. But FrontPoint does have an easy way to help protect your home from troublesome, everyday disasters, like leaky basements or broken water heaters and washer hoses.

FrontPoint’s Water & Flood Sensor

Don’t come home to a flooded house! Our Water/Floor Sensors alert you immediately to leaks or uninvited water. The sensor signals an alarm as soon as water touches it. The transmitter stays dry because it’s separate from the sensor’s detection gear.

Place a Water/Flood Sensor in the laundry room, basement or any area that has flood potential. With an instant alert from FrontPoint, you’ll have the chance to act quickly, before water causes thousands of dollars in damages.

    I would love to have had a water/flood sensor at the time that I bought my house. In fact, a week after I moved in, we had a big rain storm over night. But I have a new house, recently inspected, everything should be fine, right? Knowing that the rain would make the basement a little musty, I went down to turn on the de-humidifier – only to find it and my new, finished, basement with 6 inches of water. More was bubbling like a little, horrible fountain from the hose at the back of the washing machine. A plumber’s call and Serv-Pro pumping out 1000+ gallons later, I figured that I’d lucked out for even opening the basement door before I went to work. If I’d had a monitoring device, I’d have known about $500 earlier that there was a problem. (Now I just check during every weather event.) {P.S. I don’t have a website, so I just put my twitter address in.}

    Recently when I was out of town, I received a text message on my phone saying there was water in my basement. I asked a neighbor to check it out and found that the sump pump had failed. I wouldn’t be able to get home and then go to the store for a replacement sump pump so I bought one en route. When I got home, the old sump pump had stopped working and so I replaced it with the new one. It was still raining and water was still needed to be pupmed out of the basement. If it wasn’t for the notification from the water sensor I would have been in a tough situation without a replacement sump pump. Thanks FrontPoint!

    Several years ago, I had just bought my first brand new car. We had only had the car for about 4 months. My husband had a Physical Therapy appointment & it was raining very heavily. I was at work and called him & told him to be careful. He didn’t have a cell phone so I couldn’t talk to him after he had left. Shortly afterward, I had several customers come in to my job and telling me they had seen a black car pretty much completely underwater at the bottom of a hill. I was so worried thinking that was possibly my husband in there! About 10 minutes later his Grandfather calls me to confirm that it was!! Luckily a bystander stopped and helped him out of the car and let him borrow their cell phone. My husband had then gone to his grandparents house & his grandfather picked me up from work. When he dropped us off at home that day, our kitchen was flooded, as well as our entry way to our home. Our floors were horrible & we could not get the smell out for days!! The water had gone from the kitchen (towards the back of the house) into our hallway and into one of our bedrooms. The water from the front entry way had hit one of the carpeted steps and gone into some of the carpet in our living room. It wasn’t badly flooded, but enough water traveled. That lead to a very interesting few weeks!

    We live in a community surrounded by maturing mesquite trees whose roots can travel underground for yards and yards. One of our neighbors was out of town when the tension of a mesquite root wrapped around a sewage line gave way. Another neighbor who checks vacant homes regularly entered the place a couple of days after the incident…only to feel a squish underfoot. While the homeowner’s association was ultimately responsible, the mess, expense, loss and disruption this situation caused was huge. Had they had one of your alarms, I’m sure the devastation would have been far less.
