How FloodStop FS 3/4-NPT-Version 4 Works:
The FloodStop valve installs between the water heater and its manual shutoff valve.
Water/leak sensor placement is at the water heater base.
Valve is open until water leak is detected
Water on the sensor signals the Floodstop controller which closes the valve and alarms.
Valve remains closed until system is reset and sensor is dry.
