Water Line Freeze Protection in Australia
With 37% of home owners claiming water damage it is essential to have water and freeze protection as part of our Network. The sensor will alert the Network and warn you as temperatures reach 40 degrees, before pipes freeze. And, you’ll know instantly if your washer starts to leak. Water has a unique property in that it expands as it freezes. This expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. No matter the strength of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break. Keeping water thawed is simply a matter of conservation of heat. You need to keep the temperature of the water above freezing. Now, HOW you do that is a more complicated issue. The three most common methods are adding heat with a heating device, insulating to conserve heat, and adding heat by bringing in warmer water. National home safety pipe freeze protection solutions for residential use protect water supply and drain pipes from damage due to freezing temperatures. We also offer in-line heating systems to protect pipes that deliver potable water from a lake, reservoir or spring. Constant wattage and self-regulating cables are available, in cut-to-length versions and pre-terminated kits that make installation easy for do-it-yourselfers.
