Prevent Ice Makers and Water Filters from flooding your property: Water Filter and Ice maker components are small and break easily. Water-line breaks develop from movement, accidental bumping and simple vibration. In many cases a crack in the water-line grows from simple vibrations, eventually and unexpectedly rupturing, and then flooding the property. Whether at home, at work, or on vacation these flooding events can go undetected for hours or even days.
FloodStop1/4-C automatically shuts off the water supply to the Water Heater and sounds an alarm, leaving all other household fixtures and appliances operational. As soon as a few drops of water make contact with the FloodStop "Sensor", it triggers the FloodStop "Valve" to close. Easily installed in ten minutes. 1-Year Manufacturer's Warranty.
Without FloodStop, Flooding Will Continue: Unexpected appliance failures cause flooding and water damage, which will continue unabated until the problem is discovered and the water supply is manually shut off.
With FloodStop, Property Damage is Avoided: Water loss from unexpected appliance failures and hose ruptures are detected by FloodStop's water/leak sensor, and the water supply is automatically and immediately shut off.
