Re: Water Shut-off Valve

The power is used only to move the valve. No power is consumed to keep the valve in either the open or closed position. The only power continuously in use is that used in monitoring the water flow when the valve is open - a minute amount - shown on a LCD display. The valve self-tests every 7 days. Indicator lights show the homeowner the position of the valve.

The standard distance between the valve and the control box is a two meter cable, but on longer cable runs they suggest an extra battery (both PP3), for which space & connection is allowed for in the control box.

Re: Water Shut-off Valve

How dependable with regard to `sticking` due to calcium residue. Many with emergency water tanks have had the valve stick closed if not used very often although a thump with a hammer usually releases it.

Re: Water Shut-off Valve

We use programable radiator valves at home in the uk, they run on 2 aa batteries and last most of the year, every saturday at 11 am they go through a decalcifying process, basicaly opening and closing the valve a few times. To be fair we have soft water so dont suffer from limescale problems.not quite the same but similar in principle.

We have not asked that question specifically, but will do so in our next meeting with the manufacturers. The valve opens and closes itself automatically every 7 days, which I have assumed is to prevent sticking, but we need to check. If no satisfactory response we will need to provide a hammer with each set.

Or an incoming filtration set, another business opportunity.
