The Guardian Valve Controller installs over existing 1/2? to 1-1/4? quarter-turn ball valves without the need for tools or pipe cutting. The Valve Controller communicates directly with the Guardian Leak Detectors and can close your water main automatically in the event of leaks or freezing conditions.
The free iOS and Android App provide leak notification, systems status, and remote control of the valve to give you peace of mind even when you are away from the house.
