IntelliFlow for Washing Machines

The Watts IntelliFlow washing machine water shut-off valve uses sophisticated electrical technology to regulate water flow. When a washing machine operates, the valve senses an increase in current draw. This signals the normally-closed valves to open and allow flow of hot and cold water to the unit. The valves close when current draws fall back to normal levels. The valves are equipped with 1/2” inlet connections and a standard, 120-volt power cord. No hardwiring is required, and the washing machine’s power cord connects directly to the valve. stocks the recessed wall mount version of the valve, also equipped with a leak sensor. The leak sensor provides peace of mind: it will signal the valves to close should the washing machine ever leak, thus preventing flooding.
