“In 2011 we experienced what we thought was a slight water leak from our water heater. However, this leak seeped under the wall from the garage into the house and under a relatively newly installed floating cork floor. While our home insurance fully covered the repair, we also received a letter from the insurer…”
“…suggesting that we might want to consider installing a leak detection system so that they could continue to ensure our property. Along with the letter, they sent a list of companies that supplied leak detection systems. I researched these companies and decided that the H2O SOSTM was the one that met our needs for several reasons. Unlike some systems, it did not require extensive re-working of all water entry locations meaning that minimal time was required for a plumber to install the major component—a valve that shuts off the water at the entry point.
There is one valve, not one on the very faucet or other water sources. The system also did not require tearing out of sheetrock. Thus, the installation could be done with minimal disruption of the home environment. Because our water sources—bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, and water heater—are not centrally located and because wall access is not possible throughout the house, we chose to install the wireless system. The sensors are located at the point of each potential leak and are connected to a wireless transmitter. Once the system is installed, all that is required of the homeowner is a monthly system check—turning the system off at the control point—and a semi-annual test of each transmitter. This is quickly and easily done. Beyond that, one has peace of mind that any leak that might occur will result in a total system shut down before any damage can be done. Our insurance company is happy, too!”

“As a builder of fine, custom homes, we offer our homeowners only the best in products and finishes. For several years, we have been pleased to offer the H2O SOSTM system. Having this system installed in their new home gives peace of mind to the client, as well as the builder. We’ve found Rod McDonald with Water Damage Prevention Systems LLC, to be highly professional on all our projects—always on time and on budget.”

“Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that the H2O SOSTM has probably already paid for itself. While the little grandkids were visiting (just potty trained), one of them must have clogged up the toilet with paper. Someone went in to use, flushed, and left. Well, the bowl overflowed onto the tile floor, and the H2O SOSTM shut off all the water and limited the overflow. The water was contained in the tile area, prevented by the thresholds from flowing onto the reclaimed wood flooring. As you know, we just moved back in the house in June after a year’s reconstruction, because a connector had broken off another toilet and flooded the entire house. Lots of time, money, and frustration avoided with the latest incident.”

“I have worked with the Rod McDonald , the owner of Water Damage Prevention Systems LLC, since the late 90s. I'm an insurance agent and see the cost and heartache caused by water damage claims much too often. I wouldn’t own a home that didn’t have a system from Water Damage Prevention System. My wife and I have had them in two different homes and have been saved from potential large losses on several occasions. The system is awesome. Rod is a man of absolute integrity who stands behind his product.”

“Just a note to tell you the H2O SOSTM you recently installed is the best investment I’ve made in a decade. As far as I’m concerned it paid for itself within weeks. An incorrectly installed cold water hose to our refrigerator sprang a small leak. Your H2O SOSTM signaled the leak immediately, which meant we were able to call the plumber before an annoyance became a big bill. And you were generous enough to take time from your busy schedule to verify that the system did its job. I call that service with a capital ‘S’!”
“…I also want to praise you for the amount of time you put into installing the system, and the very high degree of customization you were able to accomplish in a retrofit. Working with you was a pleasure. I recommend the H2O SOSTM to every homeowner. Twenty years from now, when ‘smart’ homes routinely equipped with sensors have gone a long way toward making high-cost floods a thing of the past, people will wonder why they hadn’t installed the H2O SOSTM sooner.
I give you and the H2O SOSTM my highest recommendation. It’s first-class technology.”

“Installed in our home when we built it two years ago. This last weekend, my wife and I were helping friends move and were gone all day. Sometime during the day, we had a pipe failure in a wall at the shower valve. The H2O SOSTM worked its magic and shut the water off before any damage was done. The system more than paid for itself. Our insurance deductible alone would have been more than the cost of the entire system!”
- Kent Janes, San Antonio, TX
“My wife and I decided to purchase the H2O SOSTM after we experienced the near flooding of our house one night while we slept. The water came from the hot water supply line under the kitchen sink. Fortunately, I discovered the problem before there was any major flooding and all of the water was confined to the kitchen floor. If I had not gotten up to let the dog outside, I would not have discovered the problem before morning. By then our entire house would have been flooded.”
“Shortly after installation in our home, my wife discovered that the water supply to our house had inexplicably shut off. Upon investigation, I found that a leak had occurred in the water supply to the toilet in the master bedroom. I had only to clean a small puddle of water and make minor plumbing repairs before restoring the water supply to the house.
The system gives us a great deal of peace of mind, especially when we are sleeping or away from home.”
- John W. Bell, Garden Ridge, TX
“Last year, our home suffered major flooding caused by a defective pipe in our master bathroom on the last floor. Almost half of the house needed to be rebuilt while we were staying at a hotel four months long. Right away, I started looking for a device that could prevent future flooding at home, which led me to Rod’s product. I installed the device under Rod’s guidance, tested it a couple of times, and was relieved at last. I was very happy with Rod’s service all the way and would recommend his product to anyone who is concerned about such type of disaster.”

“Just wanted to thank you for the great product and service you are providing. The Aransas Princess has 112 private residences on 8 floors. Prior to installing your system, the building experienced 2-3 catastrophic leaks yearly. These leaks might go unnoticed for several days until multiple units on several floors were damaged. Since the installation of the H2O SOSTM system we have experienced no major leaks or leak related damage.
