Most of us have had the opportunity to use our water heaters, and often on a daily basis. But when water heaters start to leak, they create quite a mess, and are a headache to clean up. One way to make sure you know if your water heater springs a leak is to install a Water Heater Alarm that detects leaks or seepage from your water heater. Honeywell makes a Water Detection Alarm (we found one at Home Depot Online) that picks up on small amounts of water heater with a very loud noise. If water damage is something that you are worried about, consider getting an alarm...sometimes stopping a small leak is a smaller headache, and smaller claim, than discovering a large puddle.
