Where should I install the Control?

The main water entry line may be located in a basement, utility closet, garage, or crawlspace depending on which type of dwelling it is (a house, townhome or apartment). The main water entry line should have a shutoff valve used to stop the water supply to the home. (Note: this product is not intended to replace the main shutoff valve in a dwelling.) The main water entry line is typically near the water heater. It is the line that splits into the water heater and the cold water for the building. The Control is compatible with 3/4", 1", and 1 1/4" pipe diameters. 

Install the Control on the main water line, before any branches to other appliances, and after the shutoff valve and pressure-reducing valve (PRV). Installing on a pipe other than the main line will not allow you to see all water usage in your home. The Control should only be installed indoors or in a covered, enclosed area where it is safe from excessive moisture, temperature fluctuations, wind, and direct sunlight (such as a crawlspace). Note: If you don't have a PRV, you may need to disable your pressure alerts. This device is not intended to serve as the main shutoff valve for your line. Do not install this product on a fire suppression system.

The Control requires varying lengths of pipe to be cut when using Sharkbite Push-to-Connect (PTC) fittings:

Pipe Diameter
PTC Cut Length Required
3/4" 8.5"
1" 10"
1 1/4" 10"


We are not able to advise on PTC Cut Lengths or space requirements if you are using national pipe thread (NTP) fittings.




Please Note: Consider checking your Wi-Fi signal strength at this location before installing the Control. The Control requires a 2.4ghz Wi-Fi connection for operation. Try opening a browser page on your phone from this location to ensure you receive a signal. The chosen install location must also be in range of a standard wall outlet. The included power supply can reach an outlet a linear distance of 10 feet away from the install spot. 25-foot and 50-foot extension cords are available for purchase on www.StreamLabsWater.com.
