Why You Need to Install a FloWatch System

The number of in-line valves that are found to be shut off during service calls is a highly alarming development in the home sprinkler industry. There has never been a mandate in the law for sprinkler systems to be monitored before.

The FloWatch 9251 is a custom fire sprinkler control and monitoring system that eliminates this issue as well as many other fire threats by keeping track of flow switches, pump status, and tank level.

Although the main concerns have been addressed by a rewrite of the current British Standard for residential sprinkler systems. RAD is promoting the FloWatch solution before the change.

Since most our future larger projects will incorporate this monitoring system, we are urging as many of our clients as we can to do so.

To explore your sprinkler installation’s alternatives for completely complying with the enhanced requirements, please contact us.

Product Features

A factory-fitted AGM rechargeable battery provides the FloWatch system with a 24-hour battery backup; it does this in case of any main power failure. This excellent feature will give you total peace of mind at all times.

Flow switches are required to be monitored by current standards since they can detect when water is flowing in the sprinkler system. Utilising the FloWatch technology guarantees that water is prepared for quick activation, should it be required.

If a sprinkler activates or there is a problem with the system, an instantly recognisable and audible alert will sound. The FloWatch system guarantees total awareness of every sprinkler element activation.

Ensuring that pumps are ready for use is very important for safety. The FloWatch system will ensure that any pump fault in the sprinklers is monitored, for early detection so that preventative measures can be taken.

As the FloWatch system continuously checks for low water levels in the sprinklers or combined tanks and will sound an alarm to warn of any malfunction within the water supply, you can rest easy knowing that you always have adequate water.

FloWatch makes it simple to travel and spend time away from home in absolute safety. Through your web browser, you may check the system’s status remotely and even set up email alerts to notify you when an alarm is triggered.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.
