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.
As the major contractor involved with the all maintenance aspects of the flats, we called and saw several of these new Floodchecks working, and heard the responses of the tenants about them. It seemed like a brilliant idea to me and our team and the tenants also seemed duly impressed. It emerged later that the property’s insurance company had specified that every flat had to have one.
This was not surprising, from our point of view, as on numerous occasions we have seen the massive damage and disruption that can occur when a simple water pipe bursts or leaks. When this has happened on the top flat in a ten story block, the result has been complete devastation.
That was over ten years ago.
Of course, since then in ten years use a few have failed and some been replaced, but overall the majority of the original 300+ Floodchecks are still religiously and diligently doing their job detecting water leaks, preventing leaks and protecting the buildings 24/7.
Recently we have been called to replace a few of the old original Floodchecks with the latest ‘all singing and dancing’ 2015 model.
We are now very pleased that a decision could soon be made to replace all old Floodchecks with the latest, much improved model. Floodcheck have negotiated and offered a really good discount for existing clients to upgrade their old model.
We are very pleased that Floodcheck have asked Taurus to undertake fitting and commissioning the upgraded Floodchecks, as and when the time comes. Indeed some of the upgrades already been completed.
We would be most pleased to offer any guidance or opinion about Floodcheck, just call us on 07966 153688 or visit our website Taurus Property Maintenance.
