What happens if I have a power outage?
The LeakSmart® Valve has a dual power source. It is powered with an AC power adaptor and also has a battery backup (4 AA batteries). It is recommended that you keep your valve operating on AC power and only use batteries as a backup power source. If fresh batteries are installed in the LeakSmart® Valve, the system will continue to operate in the event of a power outage. It is recommended to have UPS (uninterrupted power supply/ battery backup) in place for the LeakSmart® hub. As long as the hub maintains power you will be protected.
