Protect Your Property from the Risk of Water Damage
Surestop stopcock is the modern alternative to the brass stopcock – now you can turn off your mains water supply with the flick of a switch. Surestop run purely on the water pressure within your property without the assistance of electricity or batteries.
The valve (located on your plumbing pipe work) is connected to the ‘remote switch’ by twin-bore flexible tubing. The tubing takes a very small bleed of water from the mains flow, up to the switch on the wall and back into the main stream within your pipe work. When the ‘remote switch’ is changed from the ‘on’ position to the ‘off’ position the flow back from the ‘remote switch’ to the valve is stopped, pushing the flow back on itself, creating higher pressure on the diaphragm top than that within the main flow, closing the valve completely.
