The Autostopcock was conceived in 1993 by William Visser, an electrical engineer; the first product was marketted under the name of “TapOff”. Later the TapOff was re-engineered to provide an “intelligent water switch” with upgraded features.

Specification

Autostopcock is available in 15mm & 22mm units. Turkish pipework is usually 22mm. The internal control box is the same size as a double electric plug socket and can be either surface mounted or recessed.
The internal box contains the batteries that control the Autostopcock valve – they are linked by cable. There is no electrical installation required and can be fitted by a DIY enthusiast of plumber in one hour (we supply written instructions in Turkish).
Everything required (except the battery) is included in the kit.

Main Elements

Main Remote Switch: can be located away from the mains water valve and is connected by a 4-core cable. It contains the brain of the unit and has an LCD display showing the status of the valve (on/off/override) and a temperature gauge which will turn to off at 3 degrees centigrade. The unit is battery operated and has an alarm to alert to low battery power. Long cable runs (up to 200m) will require two batteries; battery life is aprox 3 years.

Mains Water Valve: Autostopcock is fitted with a high quality WRAS approved valve made by ASCO-numatics in UK. Available in either 22mm or 15mm it is fitted with compression fittings. Every 48 hours the valve self-tests which also serves to clean the mechanism and avoid sticking.

Flow Sensor: the WRAS approved flow sensor is coupled with the water valve, which in turn allows the switch to measure the time of water flow. If the water flow exceeds 45 minutes (variable) it detects a burst pipe and the switch will turn the mains water off. Also, if there is no flow for 72hours (variable) it decides the property is unoccupied and switches the main supply off.

The variable times are factory settings at the point of order.

Insurance companies, including AXA, Zurich and Bluefin offer discounts for properties with Autostopcock fitted. We are talking to Turkish insurance companies at this time.
Homeowners renting their properties may be able to claim the cost of installation against their tax allowance.

Connections is our Fethiye based company which now has the rights granted by Autostopcock in UK to supply its products in Turkey. We are the only supplier in Turkey.

Prices: 15mm £155 + KDV; 22mm £200 + KDV (priced in pounds because we buy, transport and pay duty based on pound, but we sell in Turkey and pay KDV (VAT) in Turkey.
