Beware the Hidden Danger: Fridge Water Connections – A Flood Risk That Can Seriously Damage Your Home

Your fridge water connection poses a potential flood risk that can be managed. The system relies on valves that rapidly open and close for efficient operation. Still, this design comes with challenges, especially as the pipes and fittings are all plastic.

The swift valve closure may trigger a water hammer in the plastic water line, generating shock waves within the pipes as the water flow suddenly stops and reverses. This action leads to pressure spikes and vibrations, which can gradually loosen pipe fittings or cause older plastic pipes and fittings to crack and unexpectedly rupture.

Damage to plastic pipes can also occur due to movement or accidental bumps, which are inevitable with regular fridge usage. If undetected, a small leak can quickly escalate into a significant issue.

Be Aware of the Risk: There are 7 to 10 meters of plastic piping lurking behind your fridge

Take Control of Fridge Flood Risks: Protect your home from unexpected leaks from the seven meters of plastic hose at the back of your fridge

Don't Overlook this Hidden Danger: Loose plastic pipes & fittings behind your fridge

Plastic Pipes Are Fragile: The plastic pipes that are loose on the floor are vulnerable to rodents, accidental impact and routine cleaning

Early Detection is Key: Invest in a Fridge Flood Protection Detection Alarm to Protect Your Home

Installing an AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System is critical in protecting your home from devastating water damage. Even a small leak behind your fridge can lead to severe issues, particularly for wooden floors, which are susceptible to staining, sub-floor deterioration, and mould growth.

Undetected water leaks can cause irreversible damage and can be especially concerning when returning from holiday, only to find your fridge has sunken through the floor due to a long-hidden water leak underneath it. Even the smallest cracks in your flooring can lead to significant water damage, making it crucial to take preventative measures to avoid costly repairs.

Investing in an AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System can provide peace of mind, ensuring any water leaks are detected early, and further damage can be prevented. With automatic water supply shut off, this solution offers an added layer of protection against potential water damage. Protect your home and invest in a reliable leak detection alarm system.

The photo above illustrates the severe damage that can occur due to a slow leak behind a fridge. The timber flooring is visibly buckled, with water seeping underneath and running through the concrete slab. In addition, moisture has soaked into the gyprock sheeting, leading to mould development.

It’s essential to take proactive measures to prevent this type of damage, including investing in the AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System. Early detection of leaks can prevent the spread of water and minimise damage, protecting your flooring and preventing mould growth. So take action today to safeguard your home against the risks of water damage before a disaster strikes.

Fridge Flood Protection Made Easy by Installing a Wetness Sensor with an Automatic Shutoff Valve

Protecting your home from fridge-related water damage is crucial. Installing an AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System with a wetness sensor that automatically shuts off the water supply is a cost-effective and straightforward solution. The AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System is a standalone wetness sensor that links to an electromechanical shutoff valve installed on the incoming water supply line to the fridge.

If the fridge’s plastic pipes or fittings develop a leak, the AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System senses the wetness caused by the leak. As a result, it shuts off the water supply to the fridge, minimising water loss and potential property damage. This simple but effective design makes it easy to use, with only one button to control all functions. A 9V long-life alkaline battery powers the fridge flood protection unit, and installation is straightforward, with no power wire required in battery operation mode. A plug-and-play solenoid cable also aids in easy setup.

Installing an AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System during the water supply installation of your fridge is a quick and straightforward operation that provides automatic and silent water supply protection to your fridge. This low-cost solution offers peace of mind, ensuring your home is safeguarded against the risks of fridge-related water damage. So please don’t wait until it’s too late; invest in our AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System with its automated wetness sensor today to protect your home and your fridge.

Fridge Flood Protection is a Simple Addon When Connecting Your Fridge to The Water Supply

The AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System, as shown in the photo above, is installed after the isolation valve of your fridge’s water supply. To ensure maximum protection, every fridge water connection should include the following components:

  • A cold-water isolation tap (A)
  • A 350 kPa pressure limiting valve (B)
  • An electromechanical shutoff valve (C)
  • A solenoid valve (D)
  • A wetness sensor connection cable (E)

The AquaAlert system can automatically detect leaks or water damage caused by faulty fridge fittings or plastic pipes by incorporating these essential components. In addition, the system’s wetness sensor connection cable (E) is linked to the AquaAlert shutoff valve (C) to automatically turn off the water supply when a leak is detected. This simple and effective design offers peace of mind, knowing your home and your fridge are protected against the risks of water damage.

The AquaAlert Fridge Flood Protection System is a reliable solution to protect your home from water damage caused by faulty fridge fittings or plastic pipes. The system connects to a wetness sensor unit (A) that is placed on the floor behind the fridge, as shown in the photo above. The wetness sensor is connected to the solenoid valve through a wetness sensor connection cable (B).

If the wetness sensor detects water on the floor, the solenoid valve activates the electromechanical shutoff valve, which then shuts off your fridge’s water supply. The shutoff valve activation minimises water loss and potential property damage. This simple and effective design offers peace of mind, knowing that your home and your fridge are protected against the risks of water damage.

It’s essential to ensure that every fridge water connection includes the above components: a wetness sensor unit (A), a wetness sensor connection cable to the solenoid valve (B), and the water pipe that connects to your fridge (C). With these essential components, the AquaAlert system can automatically detect leaks or water damage caused by faulty fridge fittings or plastic pipes and prevent further damage to your home.

What Happens When the AquaAlert Wetness Sensor Detects Water?

If the AquaAlert wetness sensor detects water on the floor, the solenoid valve activates the electromechanical shutoff valve, which shuts off the water supply to your fridge. The wetness sensor will emit intermittent beeping to alert you of the detected water.

To restore the water supply to your fridge, you must manually operate the button on the sensor unit. Our team will provide detailed instructions on activating and resetting the system during installation.

With the AquaAlert system, you can have peace of mind knowing that any water leaks or damage will be detected and stopped automatically, preventing costly damage to your home.
