AKWA, a SMART and highly PERFORMING solution
1. Water Alarm Controller
This unit controls all of the water leak prevention and detection system components, including sensors, vacancy sensors and the main water valve.
2. Motorized Water Valve
The main water valve is closed when a leak is detected, or when AKWA is in prevention mode. The AKWA valve opens and closes quickly by means of an automated electric actuator. It is durable and its stainless steel body is designed especially for drinking water.
3. Water leak sensor
The water leak sensor is designed to stop leaks and to send a signal to the water alarm controller notifying the precise location of a puddle. The sensor is discreet and can easily fit under a sink, toilet or water heater.
4. Vacancy sensor
In the event of a human presence, the water valve remains open. Beyond a 12 hour period, an alarm is sent to the controller and the valve is automatically closed to avoid potential leaks.
5. Peripheral cables
These cables are installed in areas where it is difficult to install a water leak sensor. This cable detects water droplets and can be installed around water heaters, dishwashers or inside any wall.
6. Rechargeable battery
In the event a power failure, this battery will keep managing the risks associated with water leaks, while still using the water supply for your daily activities.
