One of the most common causes of household flooding is a problem with the water heater. Even professionals can have some difficulty identifying a problem with a water heater due to the fact that the outside will usually look fine even when there is a significant problem on the inside.
When water heaters do rupture or burst, they can pour out gallons of water in very little time. In order to protect yourself, install the early warning FloodRing® system from John's Waterproofing.

The FloodRing® protects your home from potential floods and leaks from a failing water heater. It consists of a 4-inch high PVC ring that is sealed to your basement floor around the water tank.
If you have a perimeter drainage system, this ring can be connected to it, draining the water directly to your sump pump.
An optional WaterWatch® Floor Alarm is also available, which is able to detect flooding water and sound off, giving you a warning right away.
On average, installing a FloodRing® should take 15-30 minutes to complete. Adding a WaterWatch® alarm takes less than a minute -- just place it within the ring.
The #1 claim that insurance companies pay out on homeowners' policies is water damage. Of these claims, damage related to water heaters is among the most common.
During the life of your home, your water heater will need to be replaced numerous times, with an average system lasting as little as seven years. Because water heaters automatically refill themselves, when one leaks, that leak will continue nonstop until you repair or replace it. In some scenarios, we've seen basements with several feet of water due to a failed water heater system!
Installing the FloodRing® with a WaterWatch® Alarm is the best way to manage this problem. It's an inexpensive addition to your basement waterproofing system that will someday pay for itself many times over.
Don't take any chances with your water heater! If your heater has a problem, it could cause significant damage to your home. Installing a FloodRing® will keep you protected, by ensuring that you are notified anytime your water heater leaks.
