telcoman Posted August 21, 2015 Report Share Posted August 21, 2015 After accidentally leaving my pump on and having a flood, i decided to build a leak detection system. This will shut off the pump and the city water supply if a leak is detected. Oddly enough since installing it, i have found 3 of them, all to do with drainage components (loose fittings on traps, etc). I have detectors now under any joints in the plumbing throughout the trailer. If a leak is detected, an alarm goes off, the pump is shut off and a solenoid operated to block city water before it enters my trailer. The only way to reset it is to turn the inside pump off and on again.I also installed a non locking push button in the bathroom so i can flush the toilet & use the sink momentarily without turning the pump on. That is designed for roadside pee breaks. Like the one that caused my flood. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
