FlowStop® – avoid the costly consequences of water damage from burst pipes, internal leaks and floods

UK insurers pay out around £1.8 million every day to customers making ‘escape of water’ claims on their buildings and home contents insurance. Nearly one in five claims is for damage caused by leaks with many in the winter months due to frozen pipes that have burst.
