Raleigh, NC, United States, 2010/09/24 - FloLogic (FloLogic System®), a North Carolina company based in Raleigh, has been selected by Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company to participate in a water leak detection prevention initiative.
“Fireman’s Fund is interested in protecting homeowners from water losses which also aids in water conservation. Offering a premium discount to eligible policyholders will give homeowners the additional incentive to install a new device that may prevent such occurrences,” said Lyman Munson, vice president of risk services at Fireman’s Fund.
Fireman’s Fund added the FloLogic System to its list of approved products that stops water flow resulting from plumbing leaks before major property damage occurs. “This further enhances our overall strategy to prevent water losses and promote water conservation,” said Munson.
Chuck De Smet, President, FloLogic Inc., said “The FloLogic System is an electrically actuated lead-free brass ball valve that is installed on the incoming water line anywhere after the water meter but before the point where the distribution lines come off the main. The FloLogic System thereby monitors all water flowing into the home whether resulting from a leak or water running down the drain,” “The owner sets the amount of time the water can run uninterrupted before the System enters an alarm condition. At that time, an audible alarm sounds and the water is shut-off.”
The EPA reports that 13.8% of water used in homes across America is attributed to plumbing leaks. Nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year. That's why the EPA Water Sense program promoted “Fix a Leak Week” each March, to remind Americans to check their plumbing and irrigation systems for leaks. Fix a Leak Week 2010 saved millions of gallons of water across the nation.
