PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # LFFSF16 3/8x1/2x16

Internet # 100660197

Store SKU # 105692

The patented design of this connector protects against catastrophic water damage caused by burst, broken or ruptured water supply hoses and fittings. It automatically shuts off the water supply to plumbing fixtures/appliances if excess water flow is sensed, and will remain in the closed position until it is reset. The shutoff valve is located on the inlet end of the supply line, and there are no mechanical moving parts which mean no power required for installation.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't waste your money The product sounds great, and would be if it didn't cut off the water EVERY time you use it (okay, that's actually an exaggeration--it's was really about every 4th-5th time). However, once it stops (which it does often), you have to turn off the water, then disconnect and reconnect the line to get it started again--and you'd better open the water valve VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY slowly or else you get to start again--just turning on the water (even a 1/4 turn) results in it seizing up and you get to start all over--again. I got so tired of keeping a wrench at hand, I finally took this off and put on the good old-fashioned version. It's never seized up once. I like the idea of this product; unfortunately, the way it actually functions makes it worthless. Hope someone else has had better luck with them, but it wasn't me. August 26, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cuts Off When It Shouldn't I agree with the previous reviewer. I've had the same problem with the FloodSafe hose cutting off water when there is no leak, although it's only happened a couple times over the course of about 1 year. I've installed these hoses on several sinks in my house. As the other reviewer said, once the device triggers and cuts off the water supply the only way to reset it and restore water flow is to disconnect and reconnect the device, then turn water supply back on very, very slowly. The trick is not to abruptly apply water pressure, otherwise the FloodSafe device will trigger again. As for what causes the accidental cutoff? My guess is that it depends on the strength of water pressure into the house; if it's high enough it raises the chance of triggering the device each time a faucet is turned on. I haven't had a hose burst so I can't say whether the device would actually work as intended. Given the accidental cutoff hassle, it's hard to say for sure this device is really worth it.
