Roof Top Plant Room / External Air Conditioning Plant

The Threat

A roof top plant room can contain high volumes of water in tanks or water processing equipment. A leak from any of these can go unnoticed and cause damage to the floors below.

The Solution

Typically, most plant rooms do not have a floor void. TT1000 is not usually recommended as this may become a trip hazard or be damaged. The AT-PROBE positioned underneath main sources of potential leaks, within bunded areas or placed around the perimeter of the room is the preferred solution.

Alternatively the TT1100 can be attached directly to any water pipework that needs monitoring. This is very similar to TT1000 but it has an overbraid that allows any water from the pipes to be caught by a wicking effect so that the leak can be detected.

Zonal panels are ideal as digital pinpoint location is not necessarily required for smaller areas.

AT-PROBE fitted next to pipe connections on a water heater.

Plant room equipment monitored by water detection probes.

TT1000 water sensing cable clipped to the floor below pipe work.
