WERD (Patent No 2016/01456 & 2015/01610) stands for Water Electrical Resultant Damage saving device.  Some of us take great care to protect our home with  security gates, burglar bars, expensive exterior waterproof paint, yet the one guaranteed threat is already inside your home with the potential to cause massive damages and a huge waste of water and electricity. This Device has been tested and approved and complies with SANS IEC 61010-1 and SANS 1056-3.

80% of claims reported to your Insurance under the Home Owners Insurance policy are geyser related problems and cost hundreds of millions in resultant damages annually.

If your geyser is in the roof space, under a staircase or in a cupboard, the WERD Device is for you!

why do you need a werd device?

THE SOLUTION:  the WERD device

Once the  Device is installed and armed, it enhances safety around the geyser and protects the home owner against water damages.

The WERD Device uses a detector-cable that is placed in the drip tray. This highly sensitive cable detects water, even the slightest mist. 

Once the device has detected water or moisture it sends a signal to the WERD Controller.

The Controller activates an audible alarm and then sends a signal to a robotic arm that shuts off the incoming cold water supply to your geyser within 6 seconds.

BENEFITS OF THE WERD

  • Save thousands of rand in resultant damages.
  • Save on water and electrical bills.  It often happens that when a geyser bursts, there is no one present to notice it. As a result water could be flowing for hours, even days before someone is able to manually close the water supply to the geyser. Furthermore, since there is a steady stream of hot water running out of the geyser the element will continue to heat up the water as cold water is flowing in, increasing the amount of electricity consumed.  
  • Save hours of inconvenience: Besides the fact that you are insured, there are additional costs of time wasted given that you would most likely have contractors to clean, refurbish or replace damaged ceilings, tiles, cupboards, floors, carpets and more.
  • Quick and easy installation: The WERD Device takes less than 30 minutes to install and comes with a detailed installation manual.
  • Enhances safety around the geyser
  • Affordable
