I have twenty installed FloodChecks in independent student houses in Leeds.
In 2011, After suffering the cost and disruptions due to water leaks , often by LESS than careful your students, we decide to install A Floodcheck in every house.
It’s the best investment we ever made.
After temperatures of minus 14 degrees in January 2011 which caused a burst water main in a student house resulting in two ceilings coming down, we decided to install a FloodCheck in every house (twenty in total).
Not only has Floodcheck given me peace of mind that the properties are protected, but are a great exercise for all students to be vigilant. Now if I get a complaint from students saying that “the water keeps turning off”, I ask them to go on a “house hunt” to see if there is a dripping tap or a puddle of water behind a toilet [or wherever]. It works a treat and identifies drips before they become floods! And now extremely cold winter snaps don’t leave me worrying about mains water gushing through a house.
They’ve now been installed almost six years …… and still going strong. Without doubt FloodCheck has already saved us a great deal of time, money and hassle. A truly brilliant invention . The support and help from Floodcheck staff is without fault; well done, and thank you Floodcheck.

My name is Darren Pritchard. In 1998 I formed a company to expand my existing property maintenance services Called Taurus Property Maintenance Services. We operate mainly in the Manchester area.
Soon after we started, we heard about a new water leak detection product called Floodcheck. This was being tried out in a multi story block of flats nearby, called City Lofts. At first I took little notice, but gradually in the next 12 months or so, when I called, I saw almost every flat in the complex had Floodchecks fitted. In total about 300+ at City Lofts and several other local complexes were considering or installing them.
Working together, Floodcheck® & Schofields have negotiated this superb 15% OFF offer that can help protect your property from avoidable water damage.
Schofields have been specialising in holiday home insurance since 1984. Records indicate that ‘escape of water’ is one of the most common claims, with severe damage often occurring when the property is vacant.
In 2006 we supplied over 300 Floodchecks for a regeneration project in Salford called City Lofts.
In January 2016, 10 years later, we received a call from the maintenance department of City Lofts to say one appeared to be malfunctioning.
After arranging for an immediate replacement Bill was able to enquire about the general opinion and feedback on the product. He was delighted to hear that, as far as the staff knew, this had been the first malfunction over the 10 years.
They also reported that the tenants of the properties were extremely happy with their Floodchecks and appreciated the security that they offered helping to keep their flats safe from water damage.
It is actually part of the tenancy agreement that all units must have a Floodcheck installed otherwise their insurance would be invalid.
