The Cost of Water Damage

Water damage is a pervasive and costly issue for rental property owners. It can occur due to various reasons, such as leaky appliances, backed-up drains, damaged pipes, basement seepage, and more. The consequences of water damage go beyond the immediate repair costs; they include potential mold growth, property devaluation, and tenant displacement. In fact:

  • 1 in 60 homes experience a water damage claim every year.
  • The average cost of a water damage claim per home is $10,000.
  • Insurance companies deem water damage a “ratable” claim, meaning they will increase your rates—often by up to 10%. 
  • Water claims exceeding $1 million have seen a threefold increase since 2015, particularly as housing stock ages.

The Solution: Watchdog Water Alarms

At Rental Watchdog, we offer a simple yet powerful solution to help you avoid the financial and logistical headaches of water damage. Our water alarms are designed specifically for rental properties, providing comprehensive leak detection and prompt alerts to prevent costly incidents.

Perfect for Rentals: “2 for every rental home…Tenants love these and as an owner of rental properties I can sleep better knowing water damage from busted refrigerator / dishwasher hose or washing machine drum is kept to a minimum… Worth every penny.” – J. Hilty 

Preventing Mold and Rental Renovations: “Purchased these for my rental units. One in the water heater room and one in the 2nd floor bathroom behind the toilet. Saved a lot of moldy floors and ruined carpeting.” – Rebecka Lynn

Compact Size, High Sensitivity: “Compact size, very sensitive to leaks, loud alarm can’t be missed. I placed Watchdogs near the furnace, water heater, and toilet tanks.” – CyberBass

Peace of Mind: “I have three of these, they work as described, and I have two in my basement next to the water heater and furnace and one in the kitchen. You never know when a leak will happen, so these give me peace of mind.” – Valkyrie Rider

A Must-Have Product: “If you have running water in your house, this is a must-buy. It should be noted I haven’t had a leak yet, but I’ve tested it in the sink, and it works—the sound is loud and easy to hear from the basement.” – Daniel Walker

Saves Money, Time, and Anxiety: “These water alarms are invaluable. I bought some years back after the water line behind our fridge broke and destroyed 80 year old hardwoods. I bought a dozen of these alarms and placed one at every water source in the house — behind toilets, under sinks, behind the fridge and washer, etc… Today the alarm behind the fridge started going off. Pull the fridge out of its nook and wouldn’t you know it—the water alarm is sitting in a small puddle under the water line. This alarm can save you a lot of money, time, and anxiety down the road.” – Mandi

Loud and Effective: “I purchased this for use with a dehumidifier and condensation pump in my basement… The alarm is loud and noticeable even from my basement. I love the set-up and the added sense of security that this alarm provides.” – JATOAV8OR
