Automatic Water Shut Off - Whole House Water Shut Off Valve Systems
Protect your home or small business from damage caused by water leaks by adding an automatic water shut off system. Water damage accounts for a huge portion of insurance claims paid out each year and many insurers are requiring owners to install an automatic water shut off system.
With an automatic water valve installed, when a leak is detected, the water supply can automatically be turned off, preventing additional damage.
In a traditional whole house leak prevention system, water leak sensors are placed throughout the home near appliances, sinks, toilets, hot water tanks and other potential leak locations. These water leak sensors then trigger the valve to close.
Other systems like the FloLogic water shut off use water flow to determine if there is a leak, based on flow happening when it should not. This type of system does not require water sensors but it does need a smart flow sensor that can understand use patterns.
