The FloodStopper System, a patented high-tech water leak detection system, automatically shuts off the water supply instantly upon detection of a leak, the company states. This unit can be used for new construction and retrofit residential, commercial, and industrial HVAC applications, such as with boilers, water heaters, and air conditioning equipment, as well as plumbing applications, says the manufacturer. The system consists of low-profile electronic sensors, control panel, and a Honeywell shut-off valve. The sensors are placed on the floor at points where leaks may occur; they can either be hard-wired or connected wirelessly to the system’s control panel. When a sensor detects moisture from a water leak, it signals the control panel, which signals the valve to instantly shut off the water supply. The control panel also emits an alarm to let users know about the water shutoff, and displays the problem location, the company says.
