How to Protect Building Interiors and Contents from a Water Leak using Diverters that provide Roof & Pipe Leak Protection
When a water leak occurs, large or small, fast or slow, what is the fastest and easiest solution in order to protect building interiors and contents from the damage that could potentially become catastrophic? The leak could be coming either from the roof or perhaps a pipe.
It takes time for the source of a leak to be assessed, whether from roof or pipe damage or deterioration. Roofing contractors may not be immediately available. Meanwhile, the leak continues and not only is the building structure subject to damage, but so are the contents such as furniture, equipment, documents and electronics, all of which are difficult if not impossible to replace. When diverters are put in place, the floor remains dry, thus ensuring the safety of people in the building preventing the possibility of them slipping or falling.
Time is of the essence; the water leak must either be stopped or mitigated somehow. But how? The simple and economical solution to avoiding a bigger problem is to make sure that roof and pipe leak protection is always on hand that can be easily put in place wherever it is needed, to contain a leak from a roof or pipe, that will divert the water to a safe place where it will pose no risk to either the interior structure or the contents.
The roof and pipe leak protection are simply diverters, designed to protect building interiors and contents, and are composed of a specially coated fabric to which a hose can be attached. These devices are available in various sizes and shapes (square or round), depending on whether the leak is from a roof (square) or pipe (round). In addition, various options are available that allow the device to be hung from the ceiling in whatever manner the structure requires, using either cords, straps, or hooks. There is a fitting in the center of the device to which an optional drain hose can be attached in order to safely direct and discharge the water. These devices can remain in place indefinitely, which is especially advantageous when replacing a roof is not always an option, the appropriate contractor is not immediately available, and it often takes time to find the source of the leak.
