Archetype Ltd.: Water Leak Alarm
October 22, 2012
The Flood Buzz™ Pro is an easy-to-use, to-the-trade-only, low-cost, patent-pending, and effective water leak alarm. It is designed to help mitigate damage caused by water leaks and to serve as a key marketing and relationship building tool for plumbers, HVAC contractors, insurance agents, remediation contractors, and building maintenance service providers. According to the manufacturer, as a marketing tool, the alarm is the best way for a contractor to put his or her name and contact information exactly where and when customers need them — when they have a water leak. It will help identify a leak before it becomes a flood, saving customers the costs and headaches that come with undetected leaks. Once customers hear the buzzer alert, they will call, the company said. It has an internal battery — so once it is placed near potential water leak locations (water heaters, condensate pans, laundry, sinks, toilets, etc.), it will sound an up to 110-dB alert to any potential flood condition when water touches the two prongs on the bottom of the product. Since the Flood Buzz Pro’s internal battery has an up to three-year life, it provides contractors with a reason for a service visit every three years to replace the device and assess the client’s current conditions and needs. The product is designed to feature a brand’s own logo and corporate color with a minimum order of 10,000 units. It also has a label area on the back of the product where contractors can affix their own label with their direct contact info.
