Certified Water Genius or Landlubber Like the Rest of Us? Take Our Water Quiz & Find Out.

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.

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.

Although mold has a bad reputation, here are some facts that might give you a new-found respect for one of nature’s more fascinating creations:

  • Penicillin, a life-saving drug that kills scores of infections, is made from mold.
  • Many of our favorite cheeses have mold in them or on them, such as Camembert, Roquefort, Gorgonzola, and Brie.

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.

A HALLOWEEN SCARE: GHOST, GOBLINS, AND THINGS THAT GO DRIP IN THE NIGHT

A HALLOWEEN SCARE: GHOST, GOBLINS, AND THINGS THAT GO DRIP IN THE NIGHT

As I lay in my bed, awash with fright,

Something felt wrong, just didn’t feel right

‘Twas All Hallow’s Eve, when ghosts do appear

And we all find ourselves in the grip of pure fear.

 

But it wasn’t a ghost that quickened my heart,

Nor a vampire’s gaze that gave me a start

Nor a demon’s cold touch that created a chill,

Nor a hideous beast moving in for the kill.

WHEN IT COMES TO DETECTING LEAKS, SIMPLESENCE SIMPLY WORKS – WITH NO EXCUSES

Our SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector has an extremely simple job: to detect water leaks and freeze conditions and alert the homeowner – via text, email or both - when these events occur. Specifically, SimpleSENCE is meant to identify leaks that occur in “hidden” spots – places you wouldn’t normally spot a leak in your daily routine, such as under sinks, near a hot water heater, or in the attic.

USE SIMPLESENSE TO DETECT LEAKS. USE SIMPLE SENSE TO AVOID THEM.

The purpose of our SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector is, well, simple: To identify water leaks in places not immediately visible – areas that do not come under your gaze on a regular basis. This includes the areas under sinks in the kitchen and bathrooms; next to the hot water heater; near pipes up in the attic, and more. The damage that can be caused from even a slow-dripping water leak can be catastrophic. That’s why SimpleSENCE was devised to catch them as early as possible.

Water heaters are like umpires in a baseball game. If you never notice them, they’re doing their job. If they become the focus of attention, something has definitely gone wrong.
