TripleGuard

TripleGuard

TripleGuard consists of two products that are maintenance-free and installable in less than an hour: (1) the TripleGuard Leak Detection Kit for total building protection; and (2) the TripleGuard All-In-One Unit designed mainly for single source protection such as water heaters.

While the plumbing industry currently has many leak detectors, few brands actually proactively stop water flow and subsequent property damage while also enabling the user with cloud-based control remotely or onsite via smartphones or the Internet. “Statistics reveal North American water damage insurance claims total billions of dollars annually and 250-gallons (946- liters) of water can potentially leak daily from just an 1/8-inch (3-mm) crack in a pipe,” said
Brian Ilagan, TripleGuard senior product manager. The TripleGuard Leak Detection Kit includes:

  • Actuator shutoff unit for the supply water line. The actuator is a high-torque
    design that fits over a 3/4, 1, or 1-1/4-inch (228, 305, 381-mm) ball valve (sold
    separately) on a building or zone’s primary water supply piping. It operates
    wireless with 4 AA batteries. The actuator is designed to withstand fullysubmersed natural flooding situations and in temperature extremes from -4°F to
    124°F (-20°C to 51°C) temperatures The actuator automatically closes and opens
    the ball valve monthly to proactively prevent scale buildup, thus requiring no
    maintenance other than battery replacement every four years;
  • Two water leak detectors. The sensors require two AA-batteries and placement
    under a potential water leak source. Maintenance requires battery change out
    every two years;
  • A Cloud-connected HUB. A 915-Mhz wireless device connects to the Cloud via
    Wi-Fi or a hard-wired modem Ethernet connection. The smart device accepts
    wireless communications from the sensors, and then monitors sensor status
    (scalable up to 30 sensors/HUB). When a sensor detects water, the HUB receives
    the communication and then wirelessly signals the actuator to close. HUB
    maintains a historical record of sensors for troubleshooting and status reports.
  • A smartphone app. The app allows remote access to the HUB for monitoring and
    controlling operation. The app can also be used to manually shutdown the
    building or HUB zone water supply remotely when unoccupied.
    The TripleGuard All-In-One Unit is a one-piece actuator valve that monitors and detects
    water heater leaks. Its single 10-foot-long (3-meter), umbilical cord-connected sensor placed in
    the water heater pan automatically deactivates the cold water shutoff valve when detecting a
    water leak presence. “Statistics reports that 75-percent of water heaters fail within 12 years and
    cause property damage,” added Ilagan.
    The TripleGuard product line’s other features include:
  • One-year product warranty;
  • Valve is NSF/ANSI Standard 61 (NSF-61) and NSF-372 certified for potable
    water;
  • Multiple kits can be observed simultaneously on a manifest monitoring system for
    Home Owner Associations (HOA), multi-family housing management
    departments, and other overseers of large facilities with multiple units:
  • Potential for reducing property insurance premiums and satisfying insurers’ water
    leak policy provisions;
  • Future generations will integrate with Internet of Things (IoT) platforms;
