Water is a necessity of life, but it can also be a destructive force. A blown pipe. A leaking washing machine hose. An overflowing drain. All of these can cause extensive property damage. If you are worried about any of these scenarios, you need to look into water leak prevention services in Cincinnati.
The worst thing about water leaks is that they often happen silently. There is no loud explosion or dramatic occurrence. The water starts leaking and it won’t stop. The family comes home and finds water flooding the basement. Or they wake up in the morning to find the first floor flooded. The damage is done by that point, and the only thing to do is stop the leaking and call the insurance company.
Introducing the WaterSafe
The good news is that are ways to detect water leaks and put a stop to them immediately. The WaterSafe is a perfect example of this kind of system.
This system involves installing water detection sensors at key locations throughout your home. Many homeowners choose to place them near the washing machine, dishwasher, water heater, and in the basement. If these sensors detect any increase in moisture levels that would indicate a leak, they signal a central control unit that is hung on a wall someplace in the home.
That signal sends an alert to an automatic water shut-off valve installed on the house’s water main. The shut-off valve cuts water to the entire home immediately. This helps prevent more water from leaking out and causing more damage. When the leak is fixed, there is a “over-ride” option on the central controller that will turn the water back on. The WaterSafe can also update special monitoring software that will send alerts to the homeowner immediately after the system is activated.
An automated water shut-off system like the WaterSafe not only protect your home from water damage. It may also qualify you for a discount on your homeowner’s policy.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
