The E-WATERBLOCK is a feature-rich water leak shutoff, water metering and real-time water management dashboard solution. Installed on the water inlet line of vending machines and coffee brewers, this device protects property from water damage caused by malfunctioning water valves, sensors, float switches, loose water connections, hose leaks and crimping defects. Water leaks as low as 3-fl.oz. per minute can be detected and stopped. Water flow metering data can be used to replace water filters based on usage and not time. A dashboard collects and communicates water flow data so that alerts can be managed, and preventative maintenance performed.
