Has anyone seen these before. This is a first for me.
Are these provided?
These books are great to have. I have the PDF and soft copy. Very helpful in the field.
I’ve seen them at the big box stores…no idea how effective they are…
I’ve seen them in a lot of older high-rise condos without drain pans under things like washing machines and water heaters. There’s just no realistic way to retrofit in drains from pans so they use those. No idea if/how effective they are. I’m a big fan of the water alarms that can be put under/around things. Of course, with those someone must be around to hear them so not much good for a house that isn’t occupied all the time.
You can drop a cool $500 bucks
I am sure there are less expensive versions for various applications.
Unless you use Internet of Things devices. One of my clients installed a set on my recommendation, and… just a few weeks later it saved the day after a sump reached capacity…
There are similar devices for natural gas connections. In my inspection area the gas line has to have a shake valve, excess flow and/or both for commercial new construction.
Yep, in Oregon you can get them at the gas meter to shutoff in an earthquake. I’ve never seen one in person but a local geologist that teaches CE classes reported having one
Thanks Junior. Interesting
You’re welcome, Max.
Yes, they have tendency to restrict the flow.
That’s very interesting, but don’t you still need a water shut off valve?
Yes, you would still need to shut the water off somehow, to reset the Floodsafe auto shut-off connector.
