Watts A2C-0004640 IntelliFlow A2C-M1 Surface Mount Washing Machine Water Shutoff Valve Features
The Watts A2C-0004640 IntelliFlow® Surface Mount Washing Machine Water Shutoff Valve with Leak Sensor uses a state-of-the-art electronic control device that senses the washing machine current flow. When the washing machine is turned on, the controls detect the current flow to the washer, opening both hot and cold water inlet valves to allow water to flow to the washing machine. When the washing machine completes the full cycle, the device senses the lack of current and closes the water inlet valves. These valves remain closed until the machine is used again. The IntelliFlow’s automatic operation and floor mounted leak sensor protect against catastrophic water damage should a washing machine inlet hose burst while the machine is in use or unattended.

How It Works
The Watts IntelliFlow® is equipped with a state-of-the-art electric current sensing device. When the washing machine is turned on, the IntelliFlow® senses the current flowing to the washing machine and opens the supply of water to washing machine. Upon completion of the full wash cycle, the washing machine shuts off, cutting off the current. The IntelliFlow® senses this lack of current and closes both the hot and cold water supplies.Watts A2C-0004640 IntelliFlow Surface Mount Washing Machine Water Shut-Off Valve Installation InstructionsWatts A2C-0004640 IntelliFlow Surface Mount Washing Machine Water Shut-Off Valve Specification Sheet
