This system protects properties by monitoring water usage from the incoming water mains using a flow sensor that allows continuous water flow for a limited time before the controller suspects a leak and automatically shuts off the water with a solenoid valve.
The Waterguard Solo has one level of guard (maximum time of continuous flow) which is usually set by the installer, landlord or concierge with the controls often located in riser cupboards or basements. This system fits pipework 15mm to 28mm.
Optional guard levels; 10, 20, 30 or 40 minutes available. The default setting is a maximum of 30 minutes continuous flow before the system will shut off the water supply.
The Solo includes only WRAS approved plumbing components.
The Waterguard Solo is a residential water leak prevention system most suitable for high rise and multi-occupancy properties.
Q. Can these be installed in high rise basements?
A. Yes, the Solo can be fitted in individual apartments, basements and riser cupboards.
Q. Can the water be restored manually?

Q. What is the maximum distance allowed between the valve assembly and control panel?
A. 50 meters, using screened 1.5mm cable.
Q. Will Waterguard interfere with the garden sprinklers fed off of the domestic main?
A. Yes, your water will be isolated once the maximum duration of water has flowed. Reset fobs are available as an additional extra which will remotely reset your water.
