Does that just break the common and shut the whole system down?

How can you shut down a normally open valve by breaking the common?

No. The unit is fully programmable with both N.O and N.C. relays. You can set all kinds of different parameters to control how the unit responds to the flow data and how and when the unit will reset it self. It's pretty slick. We've had them on a couple of jobs. You have to program them from a Windows based PC.

I have had problem zero with NC and NO master valves. It goes back to a proper design from the git, not some stupid ass head scratching re-do.
Power to ya mike. I wouldn't open a nc master valve unless i knew the line was fully charged without opening a zone valve. NO mv is a different matter.

My guess is your N. O. Existed for your convenience not for emergency shut down through a flow sensor.

Thanks, Dan. I did not know something like that existed; leave it to Data Industrial/Badger to come up with that. Too bad it won't work on my Mac.
