Question DetailsAsked on 6/22/2015

Does anybody have experience installing automatic water shutoff values on the main water line into the home?

Our laundry room in located on the 3rd floor and our home was recently devastated when a pipe burst while we weren't at home. Everything has been repaired but we're looking to install an automatic water shutoff valve on the main line and water sensors around the house, so that we have some protection against something like this happening again. I've looked at systems like WaterCop ( and the SmartHome Select Water Shutoff Valve, both of which can automatically shutoff the main water flow when water is detected at sensors placed around the home that communicate via wireless, and also send notifications when the water is shutoff for any reason. There's some basic plumbing involved and a small amount of wiring to attach the valve. I'm looking for somebody experienced with this who can install the entire system. Recommendations greatly appreciated. Thanks.

These systems are pretty new so not many plumbers are familiar with them. The actuall shutoff valve installation certainly a Plumber will be needed, but for the total system contractor I think you will have to go with a Home Automation contractor (your Search the List category) like Honeywell or Bryant or Siemens Home Systems (for nationwide vendors) - some Alarm companies also do this type of work.
