The FloodBreaker whole-house, adjustable leak-detection system monitors all water use in the home and shuts off the main water supply if any of the user-programmed settings are reached. Suitable for potable installations, FloodBreaker not only guards against large, catastrophic leaks, but also detects small, unnoticed leaks that can cause damage over time. It’s ideal for preventing water damage and waste in primary residences, vacation homes, and unoccupied properties. The universal body assembly simplifies installation by allowing the 12-by-4-by-4-inch FloodBreaker to be attached to either vertical or horizontal pipe lines for maximum installation convenience. The unit operates on a 9-V dc power supply with four AA batteries as a backup in the event of a power loss. Programmable leak-detection settings, an audible alarm, a special vacation mode, and a push-button reset are also provided.
