The search for solutions to prevent water leaks in any type of building (residential, commercial, school, etc.) is essential to avoid an increase in water costs as well as the waste of a precious and increasingly less accessible resource.
It is also useful to avoid damages from infiltration and flooding due to failure in detecting the leaks themselves.
The most insidious water leaks are the hidden ones. They are difficult to identify, often due to breakages in underground, buried or embedded water systems. They can persist for a long time before being identified, and may require the breaking of the concrete part to bring to light the involved pipes. The consequences can be significant, both in terms of costs and for the safety of the building.
The best solution to prevent water leaks is undoubtedly the monitoring of the rooms (for obvious water leaks) and water consumption (especially to detect any hidden leaks). In fact an anomalous growth in water consumption is the first indicator of an ongoing loss.
Precisely to allow rapid intervention in case of leaks, ELTEK Appliance has developed a range of WATERBLOCK safety devices. These are intelligent tools capable of detecting any irregularity in the flow of water and, if necessary, blocking it.
