The Motorized Water Shutoff Valve may be used with a Wi-Fi connected water softener and the iQuaTM app to remotely turn off the home’s water supply. For example, you may want to turn off the water when going away on vacation. Install the motorized shutoff valve in the plumbing, upstream of the softener, and plug the cable into the softener’s electronic control board with the power off ( Schematic Figure 1).
On the iQuaTM app, near the bottom of the softener’s main dashboard, there is a line labeled “Water Control” with a button that, when pressed, alternates between “Water On” and “Water Off”. If you receive an alert indicating continuous water flow, you can use this control to remotely shut off the water.

The system default for triggering a continuous water flow alert is 20 minutes of flow at 0.4 gallons per minute or higher. The time and water flow trigger values may also be adjusted in the “Alerts” section.
To manually operate the motorized water shutoff valve, pull out the round knob on the valve and turn it until the red line in the sight glass matches the desired (open or closed) position. See Figure 2. If you manually operate the valve, the app’s “Water Control” feature will
be disabled until you reset it by clicking “Yes” next to the “Regain Control?” prompt.

Install the Motorized Water Shutoff Valve
Install the water shutoff valve it in the plumbing upstream of the softener inlet. Figure 3 shows installation with the shutoff valve immediately upstream of the bypass valve inlet, using one of the softener’s installation adaptors and the 1” NPT nipple provided with the shutoff valve.
The shutoff valve may also be installed in the plumbing farther upstream of the softener, making sure that the 10 foot long cable will reach the softener’s electronic control board (See Figure 4). The shutoff valve’s inlet and outlet are female 1” NPT. Support the weight of the shutoff valve.
After completing plumbing, make sure that the water softener is not powered up, and plug the cable from the shutoff valve into the corresponding connector on the electronic control board (See Fig. 4 ).
CAUTION: Do not place fingers into the motorized shutoff valve when it is plugged into the electronic controller.
NOTE: The shutoff valve may be operated manually by pulling out and turning the knob on the shutoff valve body (See Fig. 2), although there is no need to do this when installing.
This valve has been tested and certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standard 44 for structural integrity and materials safety only.
