Constantly monitor for accumulating moisture

February 25, 2012 Leave a comment

DynaQuip Controls WCLS 3/4 WaterCop LeakStop Single Point Detection and Automatic Shut-Off, 3/4-InchDynaQuip Controls, maker of the WaterCop and proven leader in household leak protection, has developed a new way to prevent floods and other water damage in your home. DynaQuip’s new WaterCop LeakStop System will detect water leaks and moisture accumulation at a single location and will automatically shut off the water supply to prevent extensive water damage from destroying your home. The WaterCop LeakStop system is designed for a plumbing supply line installation. This should be upstream of the appliance or area you wish to monitor. Place the two sensor probes in an area most likely to be reached by accumulating water if a leak were to occur, most commonly from a water heater. This system is ideal for water heaters which are known for being vulnerable to leaks as they become older. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, It is a fact that nearly 8-million homeowners will replace failing water heaters each year.

The LeakStop system will constantly monitor the user selected areas for moisture and close the valve as soon as moisture is detected. The valve can be manually opened and closed independent of leaks by pushing the open and close soft touch buttons located on the front of the actuator. A brass ball valve is used to prevent clogging within the valve. Two moisture sensors are attached to the electrical control box for placing around the area or appliance you would like to monitor. When activated, this valve will stay closed until it has been manually reset. Available in a variety of different sizes, these systems pay for themselves after the first activation. Read more

Use Less Soap and Remove Scale from Your Pipes

February 22, 2012 Leave a comment

The ClearWave® by Field Controls is a revolutionary product that conditions hard water without the expense and hassle of salt, chemicals, or traditional hard water systems. The ClearWave attacks hard water particles with electro-magnetic waves, treating the entire water system in your home and helping prevent and reduce hard water problems.

Calcium and magnesium particles tend to stick to each other and any surface they contact, forming layers of hard scale. This scale buildup damages water heater elements and restricts water flow. The ClearWave neutralizes these particles. Once treated by the ClearWave Water Conditioner, calcium and magnesium particles remain in suspension, flowing freely through the system and down the drain.

The ClearWave not only prevents new scale formation, over time it helps break down existing scale, protecting the water heater, pipes, shower heads, and appliances.

The ClearWave is maintenance-free, environmentally friendly, and uses less water than traditional water softeners. The ClearWave works on all types of pipes including copper, PVC, galvanized, and stainless steel.

How the ClearWave® Works
The ClearWave Water Conditioner generates a series of electro-magnetic waves that affect hard water crystals (calcium and magnesium) in water so that they are unable to stick to anything. These enhanced microscopic particles then contact existing scale and cause it to loosen, break down, and flow easily with the water.
