Water (unless purified) contains contaminants such as ions and salts and it’s these within the water that are conductive. The sensors (conductors) used for leak detection are separated by a carrier and the water acts as a path for very low electrical signal to pass from one to the other. It is this action that triggers the alarm. .
This is a complete system designed to be installed in Tea Points to protect areas around and under them. It is an easy to install system that uses a 3m sensor tape positioned under the kick boards, held in place with floor clips. Should water touch the tape at any point, the alarm will trigger. It has a relay connection to a valve that will switch off the water immediately a leak occurs, as well as a volt free relay for connecting to the BMS.
Everything needed to install a water leak detection system for a Tea Point area is included in the kit. It’s a straight forward installation so you can be up and running quickly and easily. Envirotech Alarms technical staff are also available on the end of the phone should you wish to speak to us.
