The system consists of a WaterCop electronic shut-off valve and three wireless, battery-operated WaterHound probes. The shut-off valve installs on your home’s main water line between the existing shut-off valve and the location where the plumbing main begins to branch off to water appliances, like washing machines, water heaters or dishwashers. The main unit plugs into any standard 3-prong power outlet with its 8-ft. extension cord and features green and red LEDs indicating if the water flow is open or closed.
Simply place the battery-operated water sensor probes (aka WaterHounds) near places that are prone to leaks, like washing machines, water heaters, dishwashers, toilets, sinks, ice-makers and more. When one of these WaterHounds detects moisture, it will immediately send a wireless signal to the shut-off valve, which will shut off the household water supply.
Pays for Itself After Its First Detection
With water damage accounting for upwards of 30% of all residential insurance claims — often reaching thousands of dollars each — the WaterCop essentially pays for itself with its first detection. Perfect for your house, small business or vacation home, the WaterCop monitors the premises for water leaks 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (so long as AC power is present), effectively curtailing damage to your home until the leak can be repaired.
Save Even More!
Many insurance carriers, including Fireman’s Fund, Chubb, and AIG, offer discounts on insurance premiums for customers who install WaterCops, approximately 2 percent, 3 percent if connected to your central alarm system (sold separately), meaning that the WaterCop could pay for itself in just a couple of years!
Be Notified When a Leak is Detected, Even When You’re Not Home
The WaterCop system also offers three sets of low-voltage dry contacts that you can connect to a home security or automation system that can notify you when a problem arises. You could also use these dry contacts to turn the water main on and off as you see fit — like when you go away on a business trip or vacation.

Make heating your swimming pool or spa as easy and trouble-free as heating your home with the Electric Solar Pool Heating Control System. Just like a home thermostat, where you set it and forget it, simply adjust the system’s thermostat to the water temperature you prefer, and this money-saving system will automatically turn the valves or pumps of your existing solar heating system on or off until the water reaches that temperature. Try it out in your pool and in no time, you’ll find that it increases the performance of your solar heating system from 15 to 50 percent!
The system works by comparing the temperatures of your solar heating system with the water in your pool or spa. For example, if the solar heating system is warmer than the pool/spa water, the controller will turn the motorized valve to allow the pool/spa water to flow through the solar heating system to absorb heat. When the pool or spa water reaches the same temperature as the solar heating system, the controller turns the valve again so the pool/spa water will no longer flow through the solar heating system. This feature not only keeps the pool from overheating, it also reduces the likelihood of bacteria growth. If desired, the system will automatically keep the pool from getting too warm in the hot summer months by reversing its operation and actually cooling your pool at night. Read more
