- An automatic water shut-off system has the purpose of detecting and limiting a water leak. There will always be some leakage before the water is detected and the water is shut off.
- In the event of a power failure, the ball valve maintains its position (OPEN or CLOSED).
- Before installation, the water supply must be disconnected.
- The installation and the use of the Waterguard+ system are subject to applicable national provisions.
- The water supplied to the system must comply with the European Drinking Water Directive. Additives and particles may cause inadvertent effects such as blocking the ball valve or inducing wear on sealing surfaces.
- The Waterguard+ system must only be used in good order and condition, as intended, and with safety awareness by adhering to the operating instructions.
- No liability is assumed for damage caused by non-compliance with the operating instructions.
- Use only original spare parts and accessories to ensure safe system operation and a valid warranty.
- The system should only be installed in a frost-free and dry environment.
- Carefully read and store the Installation & user manual before installing the Waterguard+ system
- The ball valve must be installed by a certified plumber following the installation instructions. This is required to ensure safe operation and to obtain an insurance discount(*).
- The Waterguard+ system is based on a low-voltage electrical system architecture (24V). This ensures the system is inherently safe from a user perspective, and certified electricians are not required to perform the electrical installation.
- Ensure the ball valve is installed before connecting the power adapter. Operating the ball valve without installation poses a significant risk of crush damage to fingers or objects inserted into either valve opening orifice.
- The valve unit or its parts must not be dismantled when the tap water system is pressurized.
- Avoid danger or reduced functionality due to damaged cables. In the case of damage, the cable must be replaced by the manufacturer, its customer service department, or a certified electrician.

Certifications and Compliance
Requirements for the electrical supply and environmental conditions
- The system requires 220-240V AC mains supply
- The Linkbox+ and plug-in power adapter are only suitable for indoor use in dry areas.
- The plug-in connectors as well as the Linkbox+ connectors must not be directly or indirectly sprayed with water when cleaning.
The leak detection and automatic water shut-off functions of the Waterguard+ system have been tested and verified according to the guidelines for SINTEF Technical Certification - method 4959.
The system is approved for use with both cold and warm water (60 °C) with a maximum short-term working temperature of 90 °C.
The valves feature a fixed female thread according to ISO-228 and are suitable for use with PEX-pipes as well as copper unions and fittings, chrome-plated, hard, semi-hard, and soft copper pipes.
Requirements for FG-approval for automatic leak stop systems
Follow the instructions and templates provided under FG-rules for automatic leakage prevention systems (FG-600:2) to comply with and obtain the Norwegian national FG approval.

Changes or modifications to the equipment not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Linkbox+: This device complies with FCC RF radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. The antenna used for this transmitter must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20 cm from all persons and must not be co‑located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. Waterguard+Sensor: This device has been tested and meets applicable limits for radio frequency (RF) exposure.
Déclaration d’exposition aux radiations: Cet équipement est conforme aux limites d’exposition aux rayonnements IC établies pour un environnement non contrôlé. Cet équipement doit être installé et utilisé avec un minimum de 20 cm de distance entre la source de rayonnement et votre corps.
Radiation Exposure Statement: This equipment complies with IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 20 cm between the radiator and your body.
