    I am installing an external tap within a country park to be used as a dog wash. Is there a valve that will automatically turn the tap off if it gets broken / vandalised?

    Thank you very much for your enquiry. There is on the market some overspeed protection valves, which are used to shut down in case of pipe breakage. These are pilot operated kit and extremely expensive. There is also some simpler hose break protection valves based on pressure difference, but these are intended for use on hydraulic system and will have a pressure drop too important for domestic water use. There has been recently a couple of developments of domestic units like the “Water Hero” recently subject of a kickstarter campain or the Löwe “Smart Valve”. As an alternative, we could supply a pressure switch and a solenoid valve, but this will need wiring in and is going to be quite costly. If you want us to offer a solution, do not hesitate to contact us at the office on 0121 11 1908
