Water Leak Protection

How Water Leak Detection Devices Work

What our Carrier Partners are saying:

  • The #1 source of property damage is non-weather related water losses.

  • $92,000 and 100 days is the average cost of a burst pipe claim and the amount of time families are displaced from their homes.

  • We surveyed our policyholders who had water shutoff devices installed within the last three years and 92% of respondents said they would install one again. Over 25% reported that the device had already caught a leak.

  • The biggest challenge is overcoming the belief that, “It won’t happen to me.”  This is a real psychological bias, and there has been a lot of research on this topic (source Washington Post).

What device is best for my home?

Our carrier partners have researched the vendors below and negotiated pricing discounts with each. You can learn more about each of the preferred devices and vendors by clicking the device below. Be sure to give the vendor your policy # to get your credit. Once the system is installed, please be sure to forward the purchase receipt and installation certificate to LBC so we can apply all of the applicable premium credits to your policy.

Before making a selection regarding an automatic water shut off device, consider your plumbing system and the various mechanical devices and appliances running on this system. Carefully review these devices and appliances with your licensed plumber or installation professional before the installation of your automatic water shut off device. Please consider the potential downstream impacts of shutting off the water to these plumbing system devices and appliances, especially when the water is shut off for extended periods of time.
