One of Waterguard’s most sought-after products, the Series 7 is designed specifically to comply with BREEAM WAT02 and WAT03 assessment criteria for water monitoring and leak detection.
Boasting a self-learning audit function which monitors typical consumption, the system uses a pulse sensor to detect any anomalous activity. If a different level of flow is observed and any minor or major leak is suspected – from either the site boundary or internally within the building – an alert will be sent to the control panel to pause the water supply.
For added protection, multiple isolation valves can be added to the Series 7. Although not a direct requirement of BREEAM, these are essential to mitigate the risk of water damage during the construction phase for CIREG compliance.
Whether a site is closing for the weekend or an extended seasonal break, if water begins to leak at times of inoccupancy anywhere in the construction, it won’t be noticed before it’s too late – meaning the damage is often significant.
The controller is completely adaptable to suit the user’s requirements and water usage, with several adjustable parameters and operational features, including:
- Maximum litre allowances in each guard period or per 24 hours
- Maximum override time
- Guard mode to suit buildings timetable
- Times the building is occupied.
Whatever level of protection you go for, the worst case scenario is 10 litres of water egress – which is far less destructive than a leak that runs overnight or longer. If you want to explore a specific use case for construction, you can delve deeper into our Egan Projects case study.
