Autostopcock

THE INTELLIGENT AUTOMATIC STOPCOCK
  • GUARDS AGAINST FLOOD DAMAGE 24/7
  • MONITORS WATER FLOW AND TERMINATES MAINS WATER SUPPLY IF UNUSUAL CONTINUAL FLOW OF WATER OCCURS, SUCH AS BURST PIPE.
  • TERMINATES WATER IF NO FLOW FOR PRE-SET TIME PERIOD, SUCH AS VACANT PROPERTY.
  • MONITORS AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE AND TERMINATES WATER SUPPLY IF TEMPERATURE FALLS BELOW 3 DEGREES CENTIGRADE.
  • MANUAL WATER SWITCH SITUATED INSIDE IN A CONVENIENT POSITION TO ALLOW MANUAL ON/OFF CONTROL OF THE MAIN SUPPLY.
  • OVER-RIDE SWITCH ENABLES CONTINUOUS SUPPLY FOR TASKS SUCH AS WATERING THE GARDEN.
  • DESIGNED AND MADE IN UK, WITH WRAS AND BSI APPROVED VALVES
  • 10 YEAR GUARANTEE
.

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.

Re: Autostopcock

Another good sounding unit, and yes, I do like the idea but one question.

EDIT:
Question removed because it had already been explained on the video, guess I should have watched the video first.

I will never know what the question was! But glad it was answered.

First batch to arrive in Turkey will be programed to switch off after 20 minutes of suspicious flow. This can be varied by buyer at time of purchase if they want more or less time.

We have been extremely impressed with the Autostopcock Head Office and their support to this new venture bringing their product into Turkey.

Re: Autostopcock

You might think so, but one product I was keen on was unceremoniously rubbished by my business partner - yes, it still hurts!
I wanted to introduce rental of bee hives to customers, so they can look after a hive under supervision of a local beekeeper and harvest the honey at season end - he didn´t quite tell me what I could do with that idea, but it was implied.

We are looking for products on a conservation/safety theme, especially tried and tested equipment that will fill a niche in the Turkish market.

Can't understand why photovoltaic panels aren't more widespread. Although they do exist:

Re: Autostopcock

Awful burocracy is holding things back. We are currently trying to set up a medium scale one on our smallholding. At the 1st stage of the process (this is still a project that officially does not need a licence) our lawyer was told that there were 60 similar projects on her desk waiting for approval from the next layer of the onion.
