Leak Protection

property flooding can happen to anyone

Property flooding can happen to anyone especially when you can’t see it (or when you can’t be there to see it).

Aquino Plumbing & Heating is the leading authorized Metro-New York distributor for the Leak Defense System®, an electronic flow sensing technology that is second to none for performance and reliability in water conservation and leak protection.

Appliances or fixtures have the potential to develop blockages or spring leaks that can lead to serious flooding if left unchecked. These electronic leak detectors are designed specifically to alert you in case of a plumbing leak. The 5 common appliances most likely to leak are:

  • Refrigerators
  • Dishwashers,
  • Washing machines
  • Water heaters
  • Toilets.

The Leak Defense Point of Leak Detector (POLD) is the perfect solution for residential homes to simply and easily protect property from catastrophic water damage. This credit card sized electronic leak detector sounds an alarm if moisture is detected to help stop the damage before it starts. These multi-point electronic leak detectors can be placed anywhere there’s a high risk for plumbing leaks.

Whole house protection with the ability to monitor your system from anywhere in the world. Be notified if there’s a problem.

Not having a plumbing leak detector in your home is like not having a smoke detector. Get yours today. Sleep better tonight.

The Leak Defense System™ from Aquino Plumbing & Heating keeps watch over the plumbing you can’t see (or when you can’t be there to see it) and places Point of Lead Detection (POLD) sensors near your valuables or high-risk areas like washing machines for instant shutoff. These electronic leak detectors are designed specifically to alert you in case of a plumbing leak.
Our expert technicians perform an in-home evaluation to assess the ideal system design for your protection needs. Then we’ll schedule a date that is right for you, to install and set-up your Leak Defense System™.

Just set it and forget it

  • No plumbing is required. The POLD communicates wirelessly. It can be battery powered or it can be plugged in.
  • Sits silently near toilets, in laundry rooms, under sinks and anywhere a water leak might occur.

Simple and Effective

  • When a wet floor is detected, the alarm sounds.
  • Can be used as a stand alone device or seamlessly integrated into other components of our Leak Defense System to provide higher levels of protection.

When the system detects a flow of water greater than ordinary it will shut of the water main, saving you money and possibly avoiding a water catastrophy.A Leak Defense System™ provides monitoring and a shut-off valve, attached to your home’s main water line. A Leak Defense System™ constantly monitors water flow, and can detect as little as one cup per hour.

Be alerted the moment an appliance springs a leak, a pipe breaks, or an appliance malfunctions.

How does the Leak Defense System™ work?

  • Put it under your sink, next to your washer/dryer, hot water heater, water filtration system

  • All parts of the system integrate (compel people to use the POLDs as an enhancement to the protection afforded by the LDS)

Consider this…

If you are enjoying a two week vacation and your ice maker leaks at the rate of 1 drip per second, it will produce 115 gallons of water.

That’s nearly enough to fill most bathtubs 1.5 times!

If the toilet in your vacation home leaks for the eight months of the year the house is unoccupied at a rate of 10 drips per minute, it will produce 333 gallons of water.

That’s enough to run your dishwasher 40 times!

Patented Technology.

Not all flow sensors are created equal. A leak protection system is not a guarantee that you won’t have leak, but this kind of durability, sensitivity, and quality technical support when you need it mean that if a leak happens you can count on the device to detect it, take action, and never be in the dark again. With no moving parts and a full-port flowbody, we can offer you pinhole leak detection and no drop in your water pressure.

The Leak Defense System™ also offers a variety of accessories that have been developed to make the transition to a leak free life as fluid as possible. From outdoor timers to an Alarm Panel Interface that lets you automatically put your system in the Away mode when you arm your security system.

The Leak Defense System™ is available in 7 sizes from 3/4” to 3”.

Made with full-port, Italian-made Bonomi valves and actuators. Developed and assembled in San Diego, CA.
