Hose-fed appliance failures can happen at any time, often without warning and hidden from view. These leaks can cause substantial flooding and property damage if allowed to run for more than even just a few minutes’ time. FloodMaster’s Alarm and Automatic Shut-Off System is ideal for minimizing water damage when these failures occur.
Install the FloodMaster valve on the hard pipe feed water line between the manual shut-off and the hose line, using the provided 1/2” NPT x 3/8” fittings. Lay the wire rope sensor under the dishwasher or around the area where water from a leak is most likely to accumulate. When the sensor detects leaking water, an audible alarm will sound and the valve will automatically shut off the feed water intake to prevent catastrophic water damage.
