Nova-Flo put an end to overflowing taps

Posted: Thursday 13th July 2006

The costs of repairs from household flooding caused by forgotten running taps can be enormous, not to mention the huge waste of water (Up to 14 litres per minute). The UK insurance industry pays out over £250m per year putting right the damage caused (domestic private dwelling sector alone). The problem hasnít really been solved successfully until now.

Nova-Flo is an affordable and easy to install mechanical device which shuts off the water automatically if the taps are left running and will completely eradicate flooding caused by baths overflowing.

Nova-Flo is installed beneath the taps in a bath, halting the water supply if water has reached the overflow outlet. All that is required to restart the taps is to turn them off and then back on again!

Since Nova-Flo doesnít require any batteries or electricity, it is a fit & forget solution which is intrinsically safe.

Since it is a hidden unit, it resists tampering and of cause doesnít interfere with the aesthetics of a modern minimalist bathroom.

Hotels, multiple occupancy properties, public housing and the health sectors (but not exclusively) for whom flooding particularly from baths, is an expensive and recurrent problem, may wish to adopt the product as a means of reducing Maintenance and remediation costs.

Seen at the Ideal Home Show last year and the Interbuild construction and plumbing show in April this year with a demonstration model. Nova-Flo gathered a great deal of support from the general public, trade and industry.

The website; has full details on the product including a small movie of it working.

The portable demonstration unit can be transported to any location in the UK for interested parties to see it in action.

For a demonstration call James Barnham on 020 7815 6902 or through email at
