BlackWire Designs has announced that the company is now offering the Guardian Leak Prevention System. Simple to install in minutes without the need for a plumber, the system automatically closes the water main the moment a leak is detected to prevent catastrophic water damage.
A Guardian system consists of a Valve Controller, one or more Leak Detectors, and optional Remote Sensor Probes. The Valve Controller installs over an existing quarter-turn metal ball from 0.5 inches to 1.25 inches without any tools and features a splash-resistant housing. The device connects to the Wi-Fi network, eliminating the need for a hub and allowing users to monitor and control the system from anywhere in the world on their mobile devices via the Guardian app — no monitoring fee required.
For installation flexibility, Leak Detectors sense water using five different points of detection and can be located up to 1000 feet away from the Valve Controller, making them ideal for monitoring toilets, sump pumps, water heaters, sinks, drains, and more for leaks and floods. The detectors feature a long average battery life of 15 years. Optional Remote Sensor Probes extend the reach of Leak Detectors to monitor hard-to-reach or tight spaces.
The Guardian Leak Prevention System is available from BlackWire as a kit, which bundles a Valve Controller with one or three Leak Detectors, or components can be purchased individually to build a system a la carte. Available now, the kits start at $199.
