Greenfield Direct LLC: Flood Detection-Protection System

April 11, 2011

The patent-pending PipeBurst Pro Jr. is a professional-grade system that provides rapid domestic flood protection. It combines a unique design using high-tech sensors and proprietary control components, which offer flexibility, dependability, and lasting value, says the company. The system responds quickly to prevent costly water damage losses such as hidden mold, ruined flooring, and irreplaceable valuables. The 1-inch stainless steel TickerValve is a motorized ball valve with a waterproof, low-voltage actuator. It is the heart of the system. The SideKick, a heavy-duty water sensor, is about 3/8 inch tall, so it can be slid under water-usage equipment to provide point source water detection. It has a 20-foot-long flexible wire, which plugs into the VIP Jr. The VIP Jr. is the central control and valve interface panel for the PipeBurst Pro Jr. system. It indicates the system’s state with two LEDs and an audible alarm. The FloTrol, optional on the system, is a hardwired remote control switch box used to duplicate the VIP Jr. panel functions. It provides a convenient one-button touch to close the TickerValve at any given moment anywhere in a business or home. The FloTrol also displays the functions that the VIP Jr. sends to it via lighted LEDs.
