Claims related to water damage can damage both your property and your access to favorable insurance rates. According to the Insurance Information Institute, water damage accounts for an average of 20% of property insurance claims. This can lead to significant financial losses, both in terms of repair costs and lost productivity.
Automatic water valve shutoff systems can help to prevent water damage by automatically shutting off the water supply when a leak is detected.
This can help to minimize the amount of damage caused by a leak and can also help to prevent mold growth, which can be a health hazard for employees.
Several companies offer automatic water valve shutoff systems to commercial customers. Here are a few of the most well-known:
FloLogic: FloLogic is a popular option for commercial leak detection and automatic shutoff systems. Brotherhood Mutual® recommends FloLogic, a comprehensive solution that can detect even the smallest water leak and automatically shut off the water to prevent flooding. This system is available at a discount to Brotherhood Mutual Customers to help protect ministries from experiencing costly water damage and disruptions.
Water Hero: Water Hero is a popular choice for commercial properties of all sizes. Their system uses a flow sensor, shut-off valves, and a traditional water meter to monitor water usage and detect leaks. Water Hero also offers real-time water usage data and mobile app alerts.

- The type of plumbing in your property: Some systems are designed for specific types of plumbing, such as copper or PEX.
