Motorized 3-way valves are also available by special order.  Contact us for pricing and availability.

Overview

Sinks, toilets, bathtubs, showers, refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters and toilets are all areas for potential leaks.   Older or frozen pipes, weakened connections, valve failures, earthquakes, and many other causes can turn a minor leak into big problems in minutes. These leaks can result in mold buildup behind walls and even damage structural elements of your home. Use this electrically operated shutoff valve to turn off the water where it enters your home whenever you're away.

The use of an automated water shutoff valve with leak sensors may qualify you to receive a discount on your home owner's insurance.

Note: Brass valves have not been certified under NSF Standard 61, Section 9 for plumbing used for potable water.  We recommend using stainless steel valves for potable water installations.

This full port ball valve is operated by a powerful yet safe low voltage DC motor. Unlike most other valves sold for water supply shutoff this unit provides feedback in the fully open or fully closed position via contact closure. The valve can be powered from a 12 Volt DC power supply (minimum 500ma) or battery (not included). The motor automatically shuts off when the fully open or fully closed position is reached to minimize power consumption and will remain in its last position during power failures.

Use with the INSTEON I/OLinc or Smartenit EZIO40 low voltage modules to provide INSTEON control for your shutoff valve. (see wiring diagram)  When linked with an INSTEON controller the valve can be controlled remotely and /or automatically.  See our INSTEON Water Shutoff Valve Package Deal for everything needed to control this valve using INSTEON technology.

For example:

  • Link to a KeypadLinc to control the water shutoff valve from another location in your home.
  • Link to an INSTEON automation controller like HomeRunner RBI to control the shutoff valve from anywhere in the world from your mobile device or based on the time of day or day of the year.
  • Link to an INSTEON Leak Sensor to automatically shut off water if a leak is detected.

Unlike most others, this valve will even confirm when it’s in the fully closed or fully open position using dry contact closures (see illustration). No more guessing!

Solid brass ball valve body is suitable for many applications, stainless steel is recommended for potable water.  Includes visual position indicator and manual override knob.

Note: Some local plumbing codes may require special certification for products used in potable water applications. Check local codes before purchase.
