It was all to do with the likes of using a watering sprinklers in the garden.
(Constant flow)

Although I think I would question of being able to use a 200 mtr cable even on 2 batteries, so possibly because of the volt drop a external power supply adaptor might be required, although 200 mtr is a heck of a long run to get from A to B where it might be being used.
Or was that a typo and should have read 20 mtr?

That could be a bit of a sticky question or else give you a Buzz finding out the reply.

Re: Autostopcock

The 200m was an answer from the Company in response to the specific question. The standard is a PP6 (9V) and extended runs require two of them. The box has space and wiring for both.
The answer was qualified: there must not be any external power running alongside the cable (e.g. another powered cable) which might confuse the sensor.
As you say, to bring the cable from outside the house to inside is not going to need anything like 200m, so it may never be tested.

Re: Autostopcock

I know it's not really that relevant but because the unit has a 'OFF' facility, then when installed on the mains cold water inlet pipe, the existing on/off stop cock should be left in place (or replaced with one that works) just in case the pressure of the water needs to be lowered/regulated.

Obviously that would be a individual thing, but for instance my water pressure is so great that the mains stop cock is only open about a quarter of a turn, any more and the water flow/pressure into any of the sinks/bowls is just far too much.
(As experienced I think from the original concept which was just a straight forward on/off switch design that I was involved with back in the late 1990s)

Re: Autostopcock

Showcased at this at Trade Fair this week. First sale in Turkey made at the fair - and the items are in transit and should arrive next week.

Good response, with a small anecdotal observation: explaining it to Turkish men was a waste of time - hardly any interest, along the lines "why would I need it?"; Turkish women on the other hand got it immediately and were very enthusiastic. British women got it immediately too, but again the men said "I just turn it off at the main valve." When asked if they had turned it off that morning before they left the house, or at night before going to bed, they were a little deflated, but still unconvinced. Not quite sure if this should dictate sales strategy, but we did discuss why women understand the risk to the home and men were more sceptical.

Re: Autostopcock

Talking to a few around Yalikavak who have had bursts during last months frosts, mainly residents though. There may well be more bursts at homes where people haven't visited yet.

Could that also have anything to do with the fact that most of the clearing up is usually left to the women!

Edit:
Oops pressed the wrong button.

Question, would you consider posting to Bulgaria?
Only no point mentioning it on the BG forum if it's going to be a no no.

Re: Autostopcock

I would like to say that I opened the thread again by mistake, but that's not true, as I'm basically just bumping this up because it is such a good idea that everyone should have the opportunity of reading it, because most people will not click on adverts on the side, but might just read the title and take a look.

Apologies, I thought this was a thread on vasectomies.
