HOW TO INSTALL THE WERD DEVICE

HOW SENSITIVE IS THE WERD DEVICE?

HOW THE WERD DEVICE WORKS

The Device detects for water in the drip tray or around the geyser (when installed vertically or horizontally) through the use of a Detector-cable. The Detector-cable sends a signal to the Controller when water is detected. The Controller then sends a signal to the Robot to close the lever valve thereby shutting off the cold water supply to the geyser. This process takes about six seconds. The device is also fitted with a high pitched alarm that sounds when water is detected as well as several indicator lights. The indicator lights mean the following:

IMPORTANT!

RESETTING THE DEVICE after it has detected water

  1. If the Device detects water and it has been switched off by the Distribution Board(DB Board, marked HWC) or the isolator switch by the geyser to stop the alarm from sounding.
  2. Do inspection to see why the Robot has switched off the water supply to geyser.
  3. Manual reset: (if you have no electricity)
  4. Robot arm will be in the close position (as per diagram), pull the clutch ring down, hold it there, and reset the Robot arm manually to the open position. Once opened in full your incoming water supply will be open. Make sure the clutch ring goes back to its original position. Wiggle the Robot arm untill you hear the clutch ring click in place. See where the water is coming from(geyser or component).
  5. To close the water follow step no.4.
  6. If geyser needs to be replaced, remove Detecting cable out of drip tray or where ever it has been attached to the geyser. Disconnect it from the Detector and let it dry in a warm place.
  7. After the geyser or component has been replaced, install the Detecting cable in its original position. Make sure all surfaces are dry.
  8. Paste the wire down with a 80 micron foil tape.
  9. Switch back on electricity and go back to paragraph, "Testing the Device" and follow these steps.
