Description for Watts 0004640

Series A2C IntelliFlow Automatic Washing Machine Water Shutoff Valves with Leak Sensor are used in residential applications to protect against catastrophic water damage from a burst inlet hose connected to a washing machine in use or unattended. The Series A2C IntelliFlow senses when the washing machine is on or off, and then opens or closes the hot and cold inlet valves as needed to allow or prevent water from flowing to the washer. If the Series A2C detects a leak, current flow to both the hot and cold water valves are immediately interrupted and closed. It consists of an electrical three-prong outlet to receive a washing machine power cable, leak sensor, a power cord, and a replaceable internal strainer screen. Maximum Pressure: 150psi (10 bar).

Features:

  • Easy Installation
  • Silent reliable operation
  • Replaceable internal strainer screen
  • The new Intelliflow Models A2C-M1 and A2C-WB-M1 also include a leak sensor. The water sensor is placed on the floor behind the washing machine. Upon detection of water at the sensor, the IntelliFlow automatically shuts off the water supply to the washing machine. This provides an additional level of security, should a hose burst while the washing machine is in operation.

        Maintenance headache and short life

              Comments about Watts 1/2"" A2C M1, IntelliFlow Automatic Washing Machine Water Shutoff Valve w/ Leak Sensor:

              The concept is great but the device is not. I purchased two units which were installed at each washing machine in our home.
              Both units had issues and required being reset or power-cycled several times a year. Not a huge deal except that you have to pull the washing machines to service the IntelliFlow. There are no manual water shutoff options so water to the home has to be disabled if filter screen cleaning on the IntelliFlow is required.
              The plumbing connection required for the IntelliFlow A2-M1 is a 5/8" threaded, non-standard fitting.
              When the unit stops working (both failed completely within 3 years) plan on a major project if the connection fittings to the units were soldered to the plumbing pipe. Big box hardware stores do not typically carry a 5/8" (fine thread),(inside diameter 1/2") to 3/4" male to male coupling. Hopefully your original installer used a standard 1/2" threaded connection between the plumbing and the IntelliFlow 5/8" connector and did not solder.
              I now use the manual on/off valves for both machines. The labor and headache to maintain the IntelliFlow units costs more than the insurance deductible if I have a water leak.

                          As an apt.house manager I believe this product is troublesome and not worth the effort to keep functioning properly. No user changable parts, accessory timer is also problematic. Stay away and put in a manual shutoff if water leaks are a concern.

                                            Great concept and works, for awhile. This is the 3rd one in 5 years. Granted it is easy to replace, but very expensive at this rate. Might have to find another solution.

                                                  Automatic shutoff valve was easily installed except for the O rings that seat in the groove at the pipe connection. The O rings were too large or the groove seats were not deep enough so that the O rings would not seat when sliding the two unit parts together. Finally had to acquire and install smaller, tighter
                                                  O rings to get them to fit. This added substantially to the labor time on the job. I would recommend this product only if this design flaw was corrected.
