Water leaks and burst pipes can cause a significant amount of damage
to a property and its contents in a fairly short space of time.
It makes sense, therefore, that the most obvious weapon in lessening
the impact of an escape of water is being able to shut the supply
off as quickly as possible.
Even if you are at home at the time of a leak it is not always
easy to shut the supply off quickly as stop valves have a tendency

Also brass valves can seize up if not used or serviced regularly
(this problem is particularly common in hard water areas); discovering
that your stop-cock has seized up while water is escaping into your

The FloodCheck system is beautifully simple and offers you the
peace of mind of knowing that your property is being continually

the system can be bypassed when long and unlimited supply is required.
FloodCheck is ideal for protecting small offices and also offers
peace of mind to landlords in protecting properties, occupied or
