When your home experiences a plumbing failure, it can damage carpet, drywall, appliances, and stored personal possessions.
A plumbing failure is more likely to be covered by an insurance company than groundwater flooding damage.
The most common claim that insurance companies pay out on homeowner's policies are related to water-damaged homes. While groundwater flooding is a major part of this, plumbing failure is also a highly significant factor.
This kind of damage can be extensive in walls, floors, and with everything stored within the flooded area. The mold that follows a flood can create allergens that can lead to serious long-term health effects.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to prevent all pipes, toilets, sinks, tubs, faucets, and other pieces of home plumbing from ever experiencing a leak.
However, there are some simple, common-sense steps that can be taken to prevent some of the most common plumbing failures that occur.
At Restore of the Heartland we suggest installing two simple, effective solutions for the most avoidable basement flooding causes. These simple add-ons are easy ways to ensure that you have the best plumbing failure protection available.

Over the course of your home's life, you will need to replace your home's water heater several times. An average water heater system lasts about seven years.
Because all water heaters are designed to automatically refill themselves, a failed water heater will leak for as long as it has access to a water supply. In extreme cases, we've seen several feet of flooding on the floor when water heaters fail.
We recommend installing the FloodRing™ Water Heater Flood Protection System to protect your home from water heater floods. The FloodRing® system includes a 4" PVC ring that's designed to collect water from your water heater, where it is then directed to your perimeter drain.
Combine the FloodRing™ with our WaterWatch® Alarm, which is placed inside of the ring for added protection. Like our sump pump alarm, it will sound off if it detects water, and can also be hooked up to some home alarm systems.
Whether water from a flooded basement comes from the home's plumbing or from the earth around the foundation, the results are the same -- a wet basement, and damage to everything inside.
