Toilets are in the top 3 causes of water damage claims for homeowner’s insurance policies because there are typically multiple in every house and because there are so many thing that can go wrong with them such as burst supply lines, faulty tank fill valves or cracked tanks and bowls. With the Guard Dog Toilet Shutoff Valve, now you can prevent flooding and water damage from toilet tank or supply line failures, while also keeping your water bill lower by not allowing leaky toilet flapper valves to waste your water!
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, just one toilet can waste over 200 gallons of water each day, equating to over 6,000 gallons each month making it the biggest culprit of water waste in your home! The EPA also states that 27% of residential water is consumed by the toilet but other groups believe that number is closer to 45%. Now imagine you have more than one leaky toilet in your house!!
The Guard Dog Toilet Shutoff Valve is a battery operated motion sensing toilet shut off system designed to put your mind at ease knowing that no water can go down the drain unless you’re using it! This eliminates thousands of gallons that get wasted each month due to stuck open or leaky flappers, bad wax rings, broken or tangled chains on the lever, etc. For seasonal residents who own multiple homes, The Guard Dog Toilet Valve will prevent any break in your toilet from flooding your home while you are away which, can cause thousands of dollars in damage and more recently, non-renewals and cancellations of your home owners’ insurance due to the water damage claim.

It requires that you have a minimum of 7” of open space for the unit below the bottom of the threaded connector to the toilet tank inlet. It runs on 4 AA batteries that will last over a year and are easy to replace! Given the low cost of protecting your toilet relative to the cost of whole-home water security installations, this valve will go a long way to giving you reliable water damage mitigation and water waste prevention for some of the most common causes of loss and for less effort and money!
