Myslíte si, že se vás vyplavení netýká? Do you think that flooding cannot affect you?

This is a mistake – flooding is the most common cause of all property damage in households. Half population of the developed parts of Europe experienced it! All leaks can be prevented by the innovative Hydrostop “anti-flood valve”.

Myslíte si, že se vás vyplavení netýká? Half population of developed Europe has already suffered from flooding

A sudden leak can occur at anytime, anywhere and without warning! Most flooding happens when people are at work or when they are asleep at night, and they do not notice the water leakage in time.

Voda dokáže nadělat spoustu škody Water can cause serious damage

The damage caused by flooding reaches thousands EURO on average. It is common that several flats are flooded, or there is large-scale damage of family houses (destroyed floors, furniture, walls, bearing construction, insulation, problems with mildew, higher heating costs, drying, and more) where the damage can reach up to tens of thousands EURO!

Myslíte si, že se vás vyplavení netýká? One third of those affected do not get any compensation for damage

Stress and worries associated with cleaning the damage and the full value of your property and costs will not be compensated. Destroyed family photos or works of art cannot be restored, even if you have the best insurance.

Kde všude může k úniku vody dojít? Where else can a water leak occur?

Most leakage is associated with cracked flexible connecting pipes of WCs, water faucets, washing machines, dishwashers, or with a cracked fixed pipeline.

Myslíte si, že se vás vyplavení netýká? Two thirds of water leaks are caused by a cracked pipeline or pipes

The water flow rate through a cracked WC pipe is 600 - 1000 litres/hour! Small leaks are less frequent, but more dangerous; they are caused by unsealed pipelines. The water leak goes under the house or into its construction, and sometimes for the period of several months or even years. These leaks cause serious damage to the whole property. The resulting damage must be paid for by the owner, including the cost of the run-through water.

When can Hydrostop help?

Most frequent cases that can be prevented using Hydrostop

Leaks in water pipelines of a building

If there is a water leak caused by a cracked water pipeline in a building, serious damage of property or an unnoticed leak into the building structure can occur. In both cases, there is financial loss due to the water leak, but especially in terms of the damaged property. The Hydrostop anti-flood valve can detect this kind of leakage and closes the water main.

In the case of a cracked WC water inlet hose, there is an immediate leak directly to the building interior and subsequent damage of property. Hydrostop can detect the water leak and efficiently prevent the flooding damage.

In case of smaller leaks, which do not affect your property directly, there can be a water leak into the sewerage. It is common for households that the water can be running through the WC for the whole night. It can even go on for a few days or weeks in larger buildings. This situation often recurs during the course of the year. Then the water bill for the run-through water reaches thousands of EUR. Hydrostop is able to detect even smaller leaks such as the excessive run-through water in a WC and stops the leak promptly. There is a minimal financial loss.

These leaks are difficult to detect and can cause substantial water leakage, resulting in financial losses worth of thousands EURO. Cracked or unsealed garden hoses and flanges are typical for summer months, which can cause the leakage of a large amount of water for days or even weeks. Hydrostop can detect the small leaks and prevent the loss.

The relief valve outlet of water heaters is often installed directly into the drain. In case of valve leakage, the water leak can occur for a long time, and it is difficult to detect. When you get an enormous bill for water consumption there must be an investigation and subsequent detection of a hidden leak. Hydrostop can detect the leak in time and stop it.

In the best case scenario, as a result of the water faucet malfunction, there is a water leak into the drain. In the worst case scenario, there is a sudden pressure water leak directly into the interior of the building. Hydrostop detects such leaks.

The malfunction can be caused by a defective mechanical or electrical component of the appliance. Then there is continuous water refilling and a subsequent water leak into the interior of the building. Hydrostop can prevent such an accident in time.

Human negligence can happen anytime. Mainly children or visitors waste your water. A running faucet in the WC of a public building, falling asleep while filling the bathtub, forgetfulness when filling a garden tank or when watering, as well as many other similar leaks, can be caused by human negligence, tiredness or stress. Hydrostop prevents these kinds of leaks.

Where is Hydrostop suitable?

What types of property can it protect?
Rodinné domy Family houses

Hydrostop is suitable for most new buildings or older houses. The ideal installation place is in the utility room, the water pipe shaft, or in the area of the cellar. It is dust and water resistant with the IP protection class of IP65. Just one installation is enough to protect a house.

Bytové domy Blocks of flats

Hydrostop can be placed in flats which have separate hot and cold water inlets. One installation is able to protect both of the inlets together and can be used for several flats at the same time. The most appropriate variety is to use an individual Hydrostop for each of the flats.

Komerční budovy Commercial premises

Even larger commercial buildings can be protected by just one installation. Special unique functions (e.g. resetting the run-through water amount to zero, or detecting the targeted consumption) significantly reduce the potential amount of water leakage in case of an accident.

Komerční budovy Public buildings

Installations into public buildings are similar to commercial premises. An additional installation of other Hydrostops is possible to increase the protection of individual archives, scientific workplaces, laboratories, or other premises.

Hydrostop Installation

What does it consist of and how does it work?
  • Integrating water meter (for invoices)
  • Closing valve
  • Strainer
  • Electromagnetic closing valve
  • Impulse flow meter
  • Electronic control unit
  • Input for alarm connection, buttons, ...
  • Input for electric current of 230V/50Hz (120V/60Hz)
  • Bypass
  • It consists of an electric control unit, the impulse flow meter itself, and an electromagnetic closing valve.
  • It is installed into the water distribution, behind the strainer and the integrating water meter. It is recommended to create a bypass (see the illustration diagram). It can be placed in the water pipe shaft, the utility room, or in the area of the cellar. Or in another place of water distribution which is suitable for Hydrostop installation.
  • The Hydrostop control unit receives data from the impulse flow meter about the run-through water, and evaluates a potential excessive leak or a small first-running according to the set limits, and closes the water main. It can also detect the water consumption as targeted and does not take any action.

Caution: 462,000 litres of leaked water from one “negligently” run-through WC represents the annual consumption of 5 households and the loss of 1 500 EUR.

The water price chosen for the calculation is 3,25 EUR/m3.

Installing Hydrostop can stop the mentioned leak! It has been developed for protection against long-term and sudden water leaks which cause serious damage to property, as well as to the environment. The unnecessary annual loss can reach millions of litres of potable water.

A Basic

This variety of installation is designed for clients who do not request any monitoring of water consumption, remote control via Wi-Fi and the application for a PC. The Basic type especially provides a protective function. The user can change any preset parameter at any time in order to achieve the most efficient individual adjustment. The changes in parameters can be easily made on the control unit panel.
