:218 Automatic Water Shut-Off

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:218 EcoTip: An automatic water shut-off valve can help reduce or prevent costly water damage.


 Additional Information:

There are several automatic water shut-off systems available. Both of the units shown below allow you to press a button to shut off the water to your home when you are away.

The FlowLogic automatic water shut-off system monitors water use and shuts off the water when an unusual use occurs. The preset is for 30 minutes of unexpected flow when the home is occupied and 30 seconds of flow when the unit is set to vacation mode.


The WaterCop automatic water shut-off system uses remote sensors placed in various locations likely to get wet if a pipe bursts to shut off the water flow.
