It is advisable to install a high performing system, which has more capacity than your maximum needs. Pressure on the system should be as low as possible. When you come across a leak in the system, get it fixed as soon as possible no matter what the size of the leak.

Water and snow may gather on the roof resulting in damage. It is necessary to have roof maintenance services so that the drainage system can perform to its full capacity. Keep your roof dry as well.

Install a water detection device on some part of the building, which provides data on the presence of water content in the building.
