CIREG Water Leak Detection Systems

Managing Escape of Water Risks on Construction Sites

The number and severity of water escape incidents during building works has increased in recent years and insurance providers state that it is now the most likely cause of a loss from construction sites. The best way to prevent water damage from leaks during construction works is by installing a water leak detection system. Diamond Controls offers a range of temporary and permanent solutions for your building project.

Automatic Shut Off of Water Supply

Our water leak detection systems are Ideal for use with temporary water supplies or as a major leak detection solution in operational buildings. They monitor mains incoming supplies and shut-off the water if the pre-determined flow rate goes above normal usage parameters.

We can also provide a timed water supply management device that automatically shuts off water supplies outside of normal working hours for an affordable water leak prevention measure.

Insurance Risk

Two thirds of commercial water leaks occur outside of working hours causing significant disruption and delays as well as additional costs. With such high risks associated with water escape, most insurers will insist that you’re following CIREG best practice guidelines when planning a construction project.
