PREVENTS HOUSE FLOODING AND SAVES WATER
BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- A local inventor is at it again.
Stu Lieberman has put together a device that is designed to prevent a house from flooding.
Lieberman said the concept is simple.
He says his device turns off the water pressure inside a home until someone sets off the motion detector strategically placed in the bathroom, kitchen or laundry room.
"That sends a signal over the wires to the outside, where there's an automatic valve ... and that's how it works," Lieberman said.
Lieberman said the water will stay on for any preset time between 1 minute and 2 hours; enough time for a dishwasher or clothes washer to complete its cycle.
The system works 24/7.
Lieberman auditioned for the ABC show called "American Inventor."
Lieberman hopes his new invention will help reduce the chances of houses in Florida from developing dangerous molds and the owners from experiencing an economic catastrophe.
