Typical water use has starts and stops, whereas leaks start and continue. FloLogic detects and monitors all flow 24/7. If an uninterrupted flow time exceeds the parameters, a leak is suspected and the water is automatically shut off. Home and Away modes automatically allow more or less water use based on occupancy, and ensures the utmost in protection without interrupting normal water use. While Home and Away mode flow time allowances are fully adjustable, the preset time of 30 minutes for the Home mode and 30 seconds for the Away mode works for most properties. This allows consecutive showers without false alarms when a property is occupied and also lets ice makers function when unoccupied.
