Leak Protector by Watts® “detects” and “protects”.
This unique Leak Protector by Watts not only detects leaks, it also shuts off flow to a drinking water system in the event a leak should occur. This unique device is a small up-front investment, designed to eliminate possible damage to homes and business property.
How it works?
The patented device is novel, but quite simple. When a leak occurs, the adsorbent applicator “tablet” expands to close the valve and shut off the incoming water supply. Two tablets are included with each Leak Protector, and replacement tablets are available, packaged two per pack. Maximum oiperating pressure = 100 psi Maximum ambient humidity = 70% CAUTION: Keep Leak Protector Replacement Cartridges (pads) out of the reach of children.
