The Flood Detector is an ingenious device that could protect your property and even save your life. It can detect early signs of flooding and raise an alarm. With automatic flood alerts sent to our Response Team, we will contact you straight away if the flood detector is activated. So how does the flood detector work? What happens when it goes off? We’ll explain it all in this simple guide.
How does the Flood Detector work?
The Tunstall Flood Detector can be placed anywhere where flooding might be a risk. For example, common places are under a sink, near a bath or toilet. When 2 of its 3 sensors make contact with water, our Response Team will receive an alert. At the same time, an audible alarm will sound to let you know there is a flood hazard. Our Response Team will contact you via your Lifeline alarm unit, assess the situation, and take the appropriate action to keep you safe.

Who is it for?
The flood detector is ideal for Lifeline alarm users, especially those who are elderly and/or disabled. Nevertheless, it is perfect for anyone living independently who may be at risk from flooding. Whether you’re a younger person with a habit of leaving the tap running or an older person who wants extra reassurance, the Flood Detector could be the solution you need. It doesn’t matter what age you are, this is a handy piece of kit. It’s suitable for homeowners and renters alike with no drilling or nails required.
For people with dementia and similar conditions, it can be very easy to leave the tap running. This can quickly become a serious hazard, especially when electrical appliances are nearby e.g. in the kitchen. Therefore, people with dementia can benefit enormously from having a flood detector in place. It can also offer crucial peace of mind to friends and family.
