Water Leak Watch for Houses and Flats

Available in 1/2″ (15mm) and 3/4″ (22mm) sizes, the Water Leak Watch (WLW) controller has been manufactured to comply with the requirements of BREEAM WAT03 water leak detection accreditation, and is specifically designed to help protect houses and flats from water leaks, burst pipes or unintentional use of water, i.e. garden hose being left on too long. This is achieved by monitoring the flow of water entering the building, raise an alarm and turn off the water supply if any unusual water patterns are detected, thereby minimising the extent of the damage to the building and its contents. The system can also be fitted with a remote water detection cable or spot probe for areas where appliances use mains water.

Smart Water leak detection for Houses and Flats.

Being programmable to suite user requirements, the alarm unit is connected to a 1/2″ or 3/4″ flow sensor and water shut-off valve, fitted just after the internal stopcock.

Sized at 160mm wide x 180mm high x 60mm deep, the purpose of the system is to monitor the flow of water entering the building, flat or area, raises an alarm and shut off the water supply when either the flow “Current Flow in L/Min“, or constant flow “Water Flow without a Break“, or volume used “Volume used without a Break” exceeds pre-set limits. The unit displays in real time the  three monitored parameters giving instant feedback as to when the water will be turned off. Additional features include, “holiday mode” used when occupants are away for long periods of time, where the system only allows just one litre of water to flow over a period of one hour. “Sleep Mode” this feature stops the flow monitoring for up to eight hours to allow large volumes of water to flow i.e. filling a pond. And “Help” to give useful information about the operation of the system.

The Water Leak Watch unit can be fitted with a remote water leak detection cable or spot probe to instantly shut down the water supply when a leak is detected. This type of water leak detection alarm should be use in houses or apartments to protect areas such as kitchens, utility rooms, basements or any area where appliances use water from the mains.
