Here is key information for new FloLogic users:
The FloLogic System flags and automatically shuts off suspected leaks when the Home or Away mode flow time allowances are exceeded. New FloLogic users should reference the below video and information bullets to ensure you understand how everting works, and to ensure your System settings are optimal for your property.
Here is a user video for operation from the Control Panel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z0am9RM29I (The video is full of info, so you may want to watch it a few times.)
Key settings adjustments that many users make are as follows:
- Drip Rate (flow sensitivity): Is default set at 2 ounce/min of flow meaning any flow below this rate is ignored. It can be adjusted between 0.5 and 48 ounces/min. If you have a dripping faucet or an evaporate humidifier that needs to be ignored, this sensitivity setting should be adjusted. More on accommodating for humidifiers found here: https://www.flologic.com/knowledge-base/operation/accommodating-humidifiers-with-flologic/
- Home flow time: This is default set at 30 mins of allowable continuous flow. Continuous flow that exceeds this is triggers an auto shutoff. When a flow event stops, the timer always resets. Many users increase this time allowance based on their water use needs.
- Away flow time: Default set for 30 seconds. Some specialty ice makers and other devices require increasing Away mode to 2-3 minutes or more.
- Auto Away: Default set to activate Away mode automatically after 18 hours of no water use. When active, upon returning to an unoccupied property, Away mode will have been activated automatically, so users have to place the System in the Home mode. Some users find this safety measure inconvenient, or their system is integrated with their security system allowing automatic mode changes, so they adjust Auto Away to multiple days so Auto Away doesn’t readily activate. It’s not recommended to turn off Auto Away, as it can flag a system that has encountered an issue detecting flow.
