  • Best Gas Water Heater Leak Detector

    I have a 75 gallon gas water heater in my basement, and before finishing the basement, would like to have a high-quality, reliable, and durable leak detection system installed. I have learned of products like Taco WAGS valve, A. Y. McDonald BurstBuster, and Watts Floodsafe. Which of these, or another product, do you feel is the best in the industry?

    the ones i use are the a.y.mcdonald burstbuster. i have them for both washing machine hot and cold hoses and 3/4'' water heaters.

    i've had good results with them.

    i was told that they are not being distributed by the same company out here.


    keep in mind that this is a water shut off valve and it doesn't matter if it's a gas or electric heater.

      Time, cost, or quality; pick any two but you can't have all three.
