A new tool to stop, control and manage water production in oil wells is presented. The tool is simple and robust and can be installed blindly with no concern for orientation. The tool is fully autonomous and does not require external signal or power. The water stop tool has a high potential for effective reservoir management as it can stop water locally, reopen if oil again enters the tool, and also reroute water to surface or to a water bearing formation through a separate conduit.
