Protecting your home from everything life can throw your way doesn’t have to be complicated—but it needs to be effective.
That’s why we’re breaking down the reality of water damage, and what you can do to avoid it (while saving some money along the way).
Did you know?
While not often talked about, homeowners are six times more likely to incur a loss from water damage than burglary. In fact, it’s the 2nd most common homeowners’ insurance claim, resulting in an average cost of $8,861.
That’s why, just like installing a home security system deters theft, installing a water management system in your home that can detect leaks and shut-off water as needed provides the best protection against unexpected water damage.
As an incentive to avoid costly insurance claims, many insurance providers offer discounts on premiums for installing a DROP Automatic Water Shutoff System.
DROP smart water systems provide homeowners multiple benefits, including leak detection, automatic water shut-off, and increased water use efficiency. Often families with a DROP system will use up to 20% less water, saving an average of $380 annually. Those savings combined with insurance discounts mean that the DROP Home Protection Water System can pay for itself, while providing homeowners with peace of mind.
Water Damage by the Numbers
Let’s take a look at some startling statistics about water damage:
- 14,000 people in the U.S. experience a water damage emergency at home or work each day
- 98% of basements in the U.S. will experience some type of water damage at least once
- 37% percent of U.S. homeowners claim to have suffered losses from water damage
- The average washing machine hose fails at 7 to 8 years
- 75% of water heaters fail before they are 12 years old
If you want to avoid becoming part of these statistics, there’s no better time than the present to take control of your home’s water systems and avoid costly water damage. Don’t come home to a flooded basement or other unpleasant watery surprise.
