Water leaks and water backups can occur in many places throughout the home. Some of the most likely areas are around water heaters, boilers, sump baskets, lift stations, washing machines, dishwashers, and HVAC equipment with condensate drains.

In an effort to reduce screen time for your kids, you could try to have them stand guard and watch for leaks. A more realistic and reliable way of monitoring these areas would be to install battery-powered, water sensor alarms, such as the Instapark water alarm, pictured below.
