Water Leak Detection Systems for Data Centres, Server Rooms and Computer Rooms

Aqualeak – Protecting critical IT infrastructure against the risk of costly and damaging downtime

Aqualeak designs and supplies systems that quickly and effectively detect the presence of any unwanted water in all types of critical IT areas, including Data centres, Main Equipment Rooms, Satellite Equipment Rooms, Server rooms and IT build stores, among others.

Our water leak detection systems for a server room, data centre or comms room offer a range of flexible functionality to meet a customer’s specific requirements. This includes the pinpoint detection of the location of a leak to an accuracy of +/- one metre in a large data centre through to a multi zone leak detection system suitable for a small server room.

Our water leak detectors will alert the user to an issue, enabling quick and decisive resolution and avoid any unnecessary IT downtime, ensuring all-important service continuity.

We are highly experienced at working with customers at all stages of a project; from early stage design and specification advice, to on-site surveys, through to system installation, commissioning and ongoing maintenance support. This approach enables that the right system is selected and ensures consistency of quality and service.

Our most suitable server room, comms room and data center water leak detection systems, are outlined below:

engineers in large data centre

Aqualeak LD5200

  • Pinpoints leaks quickly and accurately, to a range of +/- 1 metre

  • Acts as a stand-alone system, where it can monitor up to 3,000m of continuous sensing cable

  • Can also act as a master device for integration with up to 127 leak detection outstation panels (10K) and alert to multiple, simultaneous leaks

  • Able to manage an entire building’s leak detection requirements through one IP address

  • Accessible remotely via the robust web interface and can end direct email alarm alerts

  • Maintains a detailed alarm history with time and date stamp to assist with troubleshooting

  • LCD touch screen interface

Aqualeak 10K

  • Cost-effective, easy-to-integrate leak detection solution and pinpoints leaks quickly and accurately, to a range of +/- 1 metre

  • Stand-alone leak detection system that can accommodate up to 3,000 continuous metres of sensing cable

  • Can also be used as outstation panels to be integrated with a master panel (LD5200) to create a system with wider coverage

  • Triggers an audible alarm and visual LED signal when a leak is detected, while a four-character LED display indicates the distance of the leak from the panel

  • Uses Modbus RTU communication

Another option for data centre water leak detection or other business critical areas 

EMS-5x & 10x

expandable MULTI ZONE water leak detectors
  • New, sophisticated multi-zone water leak monitoring system

  • EMS multizone alarm panels are available in 5-zone, 10-zone and multi-zone configurations, expandable to simultaneously monitor up to 625 zones; ideal for commercial buildings of all sizes, industrial facilities and large, high-value residential property

  • Fully addressable system, including master panel, outstations and individual zones

  • Greater adaptability than many multi-zone systems on the market and configurable to provide a fully bespoke leak detection system

  • Offers an extensive level of functionality, on a zone-by-zone basis, and clear alert reporting

  • Touch screen graphical user interface, giving access to a range of live, real-time and historic system data

  • Modular design makes EMS is an ideal and cost-effective solution across a range of applications

  • Compatible with all Aqualeak water leak sensor cables and probes, as well as infrared, temperature and humidity sensors

Example applications: Archive rooms, comms rooms, computer rooms, electrical switch rooms, boiler houses, plant rooms and large data centres.

EMS-5 & 10

MULTI-ZONE water leak detection system for server room or computer rooms
  • The EMS-5 and 10 water leak alarms are designed to detect water leaks in sensitive areas where high value equipment and/or data is present
  • Ideal for monitoring up to 10 individual zones
  • When the leak detector is triggered, an audio-visual alarm is initiated and the water leak alarm panel shows you where it is
  • Can connect to water leak sensor cables, probes and pads; users are alerted to any faults with sensor equipment, including cable damage and broken connections
  • A signal to a BMS can also be triggered via a relay
  • Can connect to a solenoid valve, enabling automatic water shut off in the event of a leak
  • Additional relays are also available, allowing for extra functionality tailored to specific zones

A popular leak detection system for server room or computer room use


Server room water leak detector. Single-Zone FOR SMALL IT AREAS
  • Designed to continuously monitor for water leaks in single-zone, at-risk areas

  • When the sensor detects water, a localised audio alarm is activated and an LED is illuminated; other actions, such as sending a SMS notification, are also available

  • Can connect to a solenoid valve, enabling automatic water shut off in the event of a leak Monitors distances of up to 100m from the panel

  • A signal to a BMS can also be sent via a relay

  • This leak detection alarm can connect to a range of sensing technologies such as cables and probes; users are also alerted to any faults with water leak sensor equipment, including cable damage and broken connections
