AquaGuard WAGS7200-4W Water Safety Shut-Off Valve
The WAGS7200-4W fits all electric, gas, and oil-fired water heaters, all tank capacities - not requiring gas shutoff. (Water Shutoff Only)
WAGS® prevents disastrous floods and untold damage to your property, and avoids costly insurance claims. The WAGS® Valve is designed to shut off the water supply (plus gas supply for gas-fired heaters) in the event of a water leak from a hot water heater.
WAGS® is the only 100% mechanical water heater safety valve on the market!
The WAGS® Valve sits in a drip pan under the water heater and is activated when leaking water accumulates to a predetermined level in the pan. Once activated, the industrial-duty, spring loaded piston in the valve shuts off the water flow.
“The One Shot Wonder”? The WAGS valve is a single-use, one-time activation water flow shutoff device for gas, oil, or electric water heaters. Like an automotive airbag, it performs a one-time critical function.
How does the WAGS work? The WAGS valve is designed to shut off the water supply to a water heater in the event of a leak, minimizing property damage. The WAGS valve sits in a drip pan under the water heater and when approximately 1 inch of water accumulates, the WAGS closes off the incoming water. A red pop-up tab indicates activation. Another WAGS benefit is that the tank typically draws a vacuum and stops the water leak.
Do WAGS Valves require checking or servicing? No… WAGS is the only 100% mechanical water heater safety valve on the market. No Electricity. No Batteries. No Maintenance.
Is installation difficult and time consuming? Installation requires a drip pan positioned under the heater tank and routing of the cold water line in and out of the WAGS Valve. Professional installation normally adds 15-20 minutes to a new tank installation.
