Shut-Off Valves on Your Water Lines
If you have ever come home to an overflowing toilet or woke up to a broken pipe, you know the huge mess these plumbing issues create. During the cold months of the year, frozen pipes can burst and cause water to start streaming all over your kitchen or bathroom floor.
Without emergency shut-off valves, you will have to find your way outside as quickly as possible and shut the entire water supply off to stop the flow. Cutting off the water source as quickly as possible is essential for protecting your home against water damage.
To prevent catastrophic water damages from a burst pipe, emergency shut-off valves should be installed. This includes installing them on outside hose faucets. The Plumber Guys want to educate you about these shut-off valves, so you will be prepared to have them installed.
How Does an Emergency Shut-Off Valve Work?
An emergency shut-off valve helps to prevent major plumbing leaks from taking place. When pressure changes occur in the line, these emergency shut-off valves sense the changes and close off the plumbing line.
Emergency shut-off valves are particularly beneficial for vacation homes or homes that are not occupied for long periods of time. An emergency shut-off valve gives you peace of mind. Call us today to learn more about your options.
What Are the Kinds of Shut-Off Valves?
Multiple types of emergency shut-off valves are available. The Plumber Guys will help you choose the perfect one for your home or business.
A word of caution: This is not a job for homeowners. It is best to have a professional plumber install your shut-off valves to ensure they work effectively. An improper installation could leave your home or business vulnerable to water damage.
A pressure-reducing valve helps to maintain the correct pressure in the plumbing line. These valves are installed to prevent backflow and issues with wasted water.
Saddle valves are installed on lines where a low pressure, low volume flow of water is necessary. These valves are often installed on cold water lines.
Ball Valve Shut-Off
A ball valve shut-off requires a floating ball to seal a valve shut when a handle is turned. These are installed on toilets.
