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 sounds the alarm.
How FloodStop (FS 3/4-C) 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.
