For pure enjoyment, frozen water pipes rank right up there with anesthesia-free heart surgery and food poisoning.
Honestly, is there any end to the fun you can have with frozen pipes? Even if they don’t burst, there’s the stoppage in water flow, always a crowd pleaser. Then there’s the thrill of trying to thaw the pipes with space heaters, hair dryers, or a flame thrower (assuming you have one). You can use a lighter, but you’ll need to cancel your plans for the day – it’s gonna take a while.
Halloween is just around the corner. And despite the issues presented by the pandemic, there will be some socially distanced trick-or-treating going on in many towns, as well as some responsibly run home-based parties with limited participants.
While the manner in which it is celebrated may look different, there are certain aspects of the yearly scarefest that will remain the same:
As the creators of the SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector, our business is heavily involved with…well, water. Due to this incredibly obvious fact, we wrote a blog post some time ago that was essentially a “water quiz.” It was meant to see how much our followers knew about water and its properties, as well as some little-known factoids about our most valuable natural resource.
Our SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector has experienced (pun alert) a tidal wave of success. Consumers love the simplicity of set up and use; the choice of text or email alerts (or both); the Wi-Fi operation; and most importantly, the money they save on costly repairs from undetected leaks.
n the process of writing our blogs, we at SimpleSENCE conduct a great deal of online research that leads us to amazing facts about water – especially about its incredibly destructive power. In fact, it is that destructive power that led us to the creation of the SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector. We wanted to develop an easy-to-setup and easy-to-use solution to an extremely common household problem. Because the ability of water - even in the smallest amounts - to destroy property, cause financial stress, and generally uproot homeowners’ lives cannot be overstated.
We at SimpleSENCE know that we’re all going through some difficult times right now. The current health crisis has thrown families, business, relationships, everything into chaos. The actions being taken by our federal, state and local authorities are encouraging, but it goes without saying, things are a bit rough right now. And the length of this situation is an unknown that is a bit unnerving to everyone.
The SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector has proven to be a pretty handy little tool. Water leaks in areas that would normally go undetected – under sinks, in attics, near furnaces or washing machines – have found that there is no place to hide when SimpleSENCE is around, sending alerts to homeowners so that they can take care of minor leaks before they cause major damage.
According to Consumer Reports, burst pipes are one of the most common causes of property damage during frigid weather and can cause thousands in water damage - easily $5,000 or more, according to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety; our own sources put the average cost of frozen pipe failures at a heart-stopping $8,189.
