This device is connected to the taps and overflow pipe and automatically shuts off the taps when it detects water in the overflow, helping to reduce the risk of flooding.
For people with a learning disability, or who have difficulties with their memory, the act of running a bath alone comes with the risk of a flood if the taps aren’t turned off in time. This can result in a situation where the person ends up waiting for and relying on a third party to run their bath, impacting negatively on independence.
NovaFlo systems connect to the taps and overflow pipe and automatically turn off the taps when water is detected in the overflow. This can allow a person to maintain their independence by giving them the confidence that running a bath doesn’t also mean risking a flood, meaning they can go ahead and run baths whenever they like, without needing assistance.
NovaFlo operates using magnets meaning no batteries or electrical work is required. Installation normally requires a plumber and works on sinks and baths with overflow pipes.
