Leak Protector by Watts® “detects” and “protects”. This unique Leak Protector by Watts not only detects leaks, it also shuts off flow to a drinking water system in the event a leak should occur. This unique device is a small up-front investment, designed to eliminate possible damage to homes and business property.

How it works!
The patented device is novel, but quite simple. When a leak occurs, the adsorbent applicator “tablet” expands to close the valve and shut off the incoming water supply. Two tablets are included with each Leak Protector, and replacement tablets are available (Part No. 601026), packaged two per pack.

Valve Installation:

Step #1 - Turn off the water supply to the filtration system at the cold water valve.
Step #2 - The leak detecter should be mounted flat at the lowest ground point near the filtration system so in the event a leak does occur the water will flow in the direction of the valve.
Step #3 - Clean the designated installation area with rubbing alcohol.
Step #4 - Peel the red backing tape from the 2 mounting feet on the base of the shut off valve and press down firmly over the chosen install area. You may also mount the valve using the screws included in the kit.
