From 1994 to 2007, Flowtel (Flowise) have been supplying the WC overflow detection system. Aquilar have now been appointed as the sole supplier of replacement parts and technical support for this Toilet / WC Cistern Overflow System.
General Product Description
The Flowtel (Flowise) toilet overflow system provided a panel and sensor that could electronically monitor individual WC cistern overflows. In the event of an overflow condition arising the system would provide a local alarm (visual and audible) and signal the BMS.
To each cistern, Flowtel overflow sensors are fitted to the overflow pipe. The Flowtel overflow sensors are wired back to the locally positioned Indicator Panels.
The low voltage wiring is installed in a continuous length between each sensor and the local indicator panel, without any intermediate terminals or connections.

The sensors comprise stainless steel electrodes housed in a 3/4″ BSP uPVC connector for fitting directly into the side overflow connection of concealed WC flushing cisterns.
For exposed cisterns the sensor is fitted in an adjacent duct.
Low voltage electrical terminals are fitted to the sensors for wiring to the Flowtel indicator panel.
Existing sensor connect directly into terminals within the panel using the existing cables.
