Welcome to FDS – Flood Detection Systems

FDSFDS Sydney are specialists in providing Australian communities, businesses, individuals and States, across the country, with industry-leading, long-lasting and highly dependable early warning flood detection solutions.

Floods incur some of the costliest damages to economic stability, infrastructure and people’s livelihoods compared to that of any other natural disaster. As an example, Queensland’s floods in the earlier months of 2011 resulted in over $2.38 billion worth of damage to property and saw 38 people lose their lives, with another 9 declared missing, presumed dead.

On average, floods cost Australia and its tax payers in excess of $377 million every year – a figure calculated by averaging the flood recovery expenditure between 1967 and 2005, although $377 million is likely to become inaccurate as time goes on, given the fact that population density, building technologies and the costs of maintaining city infrastructure continues to increase.

Flood Detection Systems Sydney aims to address New South Wales’ and the rest of Australia’s unrecognised need for an effective, reliable and durable flood detection solution. Having incorporated some of the world’s leading flood sensor technologies, coupled with long-range transmitters, long-life batteries and vandal and weather-proof housings, FDS Sydney can systematically install, maintain, repair and monitor all flood detection systems to ensure the utmost certainty in early flood detection.

An Unparalleled 8-years Battery Life

FDS Sydney has integrated world-leading battery technologies into our flood detection systems. Our industrial-grade lithium batteries have been tested to their limits, revealing that each boasts an impressive 8-year lifespan. These batteries have been specifically developed to give our clients that longest run-time of any flood sensor equipment available today.

If you find that your batteries are running low on power, or following the same findings by one of our qualified FDS technicians, we can arrange to have a replacement fitted on the same day. Clients can further minimise their risks of being caught off guard by empty batteries by having their flood detection systems inspected on a regular basis. We offer once-off, weekly, monthly, bi-annual and annual maintenance services to fit in with our clients’ busy schedules – to book a professional maintenance service, please give us a call on 1300 009 383 or click here to make an online enquiry.

Furthermore, if you live in a flood-prone area, or work in an industry that relies heavily on machinery that handles large volumes of water, you may find that your insurance provider requires that you have your flood detection systems inspected at least once a year for domestic customers and bi-annually for commercial clients. Please refer to your insurance policy or contact your provider for more information.

Should your flood detection systems fail due to a lack of regular maintenance, your insurance company may void your policy. To prevent this from happening, we highly recommend that you book a regular FDS service.
