Welcome To FloWatch
FloWatch Fire Sprinkler Monitoring System BS9251:2021
FloWatch are a market leading manufacture of fire sprinkler monitoring systems and equipment. All our products are compliant with BS9251:2021.
We are a proud supporter of UK industry and all of our design, supply chain, assembly and distribution is all UK based. This helps us maintain highest level of quality and service.
Domestic and residential systems only requiring annual service visits, they sit dormant for most of their operation lifetime. Due to this, it is important that the sprinkler system and its key components be continually monitored for their correct state and condition. Should any part or component of the system whose failure (or condition) might impair the correct automatic operation of the system in the case of a fire, the raising of a supervisory alarm should take place. This allows for corrective action to be taken.
FloWatch will continuously supervise the main function of the system and its components and raise a supervisory alarm to allow corrective measures.

What is Monitoring of a Domestic and Residential Fire Sprinkler System?
The aim of monitoring sprinkler systems is the continuous supervision of the main functions of the system, i.e. those whose failure might impair the correct automatic operation of the system in case of fire, and the raising of a supervisory alarm to allow corrective measures to be taken.
BS 9251:2021; Table 5, sets out the required items to be monitored, these are:
Pump – Automatic test cycle failure.
Pump – Power failure.
Tank – low water level alarm.
Zone stop valve not fully open.
All other dedicated sprinkler stop valves.
Trace heating system fault.
Supervised circuits fault (Electrical cable faults)
In addition to the items described in Table 5, it is important that all flow switches are monitored. It may be the case that these form part of the fire alarm panel
Subject to the building fire strategy FloWatch can be used in conjunction with a fire alarm panel, sending a signal when any flowswitch is in alarm and/or any fault within the sprinkler system.

FloWatch Master Panel
The FloWatch master panel is the main panel in the FloWatch system, it will allow you to monitor:
2 Fixed Inputs
Tank Low Level
In addition up to 4 Configured Inputs (4 of the following input devices)
Heating System (Trace heating)
Each master panel has the capability to connect up
to 16 expansion modules for additional monitored devices (inputs)
FloWatch operates in two formats;
Display/identify the relevant system faults/alarms and the associated input device name/location on the LCD
The relevant LED will illuminate in the event of any fault (amber LED) or alarm (Activation of device - red LED)
Sound in the event of any fault or alarm activation
Online Remote Service (Subscription required) In addition to the Offline operation, the online remote service enables the user to:

Receive email alerts of any faults and alarm activations
Receive text message alerts of any faults and alarm activations
Note: FloWatch provide 12 Months Free subscription with all systems.
FloWatch Expansion Modules
Used to expand the system to allow for monitoring of up to an additional 132 configured input devices.
Monitor up to an additional 132 inputs by adding a maximum of 16No. expansion modules to the FloWatch system. Expansion modules are available in 4 way or 8 way.
4 way expansion unit allows connection of up to 4 ‘configured inputs’
8 way expansion unit allows connection of up to 8 ‘configured inputs’
In addition ;
8 way expansion units have built in temperature sensors to identify the temperature of the area of installation
No power required to expansion unit - powered via master panel wiring
Visual identification (LEDs of relevant input)
Addressable - all expansion modules and associated inputs are individually identified
Note: If an input connected to the expansion modules is in alarm or fault state, the master panel will display the alarm/fault on the LCD screen, emit the sounder and activate the relevant LED.
