Surestop Water Switch - The New Stopcock

It is sometimes necessary to switch off the water supply to a building. The traditional stopcock now has a simpler, safer and more reliable alternative: the Surestop Stopcock and Water Switch.

This innovative product was launched in 2001 and has since sold hundreds of thousands of units. Surestop components are all UK-sourced and then assembled at the company's factory in Birmingham before each unit is individually tested and dispatched. The superior quality of the Surestop Remote Stopcock means that it is now specified by more than 250 housing associations and local authorities around the UK.

Traditional stopcock taps, often made from brass, can often be incon­veni­ently located. Another problem comes when the stopcock seizes up due to not being used for some time or because of the buildup of limescale. Both of these problems are easily overcome using the Surestop stopcock and water switch system.

Surestops are fabricated from high-grade engineering plastics and are guaranteed not to seize up. Operating solely through the power of water pressure, the product requires no electrical connection and the unit is approved by the WRAS. Installing the Surestop to a conventional 15mm water pipe is quick and simple, giving professional results every time and allowing the water supply to a building to be quickly turned off in the event of emergency or during extended periods when the building is unoccupied.

The Surestop Stopcock and Water Switch is supplied in a compre­hen­sive kit that contains all of the connections required for its simple instal­la­tion. Once installed, the unit will operate with a temperature range of 0 to 60°C and is guaranteed to provide many years of maintenance-free service. Priced at just £41.50 plus VAT, this product represents fantastic value for money.
