appliance. Mount the control unit. Place sensor(s) on floor. Plug power
supply into an un-switched outlet. Note: electricity is used only when
the sensor detects water.
NOTE: DO NOT PLACE SENSOR DIRECTLY ON METAL PAN OR DAMP FLOOR. If no water is present and alarm sounds, place paper towel or cloth
under sensor to "insulate" against floor dampness or metal of pan. When
the paper or cloth gets wet, the sensor activates the shut-off and

How FloodStop FS 1/2-NPT-V4 Works:
The FloodStop valve installs between the water heater or water conditioner 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.
