Subject: looking for a simple electronic water shutoff
 

i've got a commercial machine hard plumbed in my house. After one burst water filter a failed procon water pump, and leaky boiler gasket, I'd like to plumb in a electronic water valve inline with my machine that shuts off water when the machine is not in use.

I know something simple must exist, but unable to find anything online other than a sprinkler control valve.

I've got 3/8 John Guest type poly line, soft copper line all before my water filtration and that I can splice into.
I already have a manual ball valve at the wall, just looking for an electronic controlled valve.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks again for this great forum. I really enjoy perusing the posts and find solitude in other espresso fanatics.

I haven't used, I'm not plumbed in, but I think some guys use leak detectors with auto shutoff
Click Here (www.freshwatersystems.com)

From what I remember, some of them support multiple sensors, so you could put a sensor anywhere you're worried about a leak.

Try mcmaster.com for solenoid water valves:

I have one for a project of my own; works great.
