Water leaks from appliances like your water heater, laundry machine or from one of your pipes can happen at any time and are most destructive when they happen while you’re away. An emergency shut off valve allows homeowners to protect their property against sudden water leaks. There are several different types of the market and the Stockton automatic shutoff valve technicians at Lovotti Air can help you figure out which type or brand of unit is right for your home.
- Connectors – If you’ve ever looked behind your toilet or your washing machine then you’ve probably notice some braded tubes that bring fresh water to your appliances. Those connectors are often the source of major water leaks, which is why many companies offer automatic shutoff connectors that require no batteries or electrical outlets to operate. Instead, when the flow of water increases past a certain point the valve will shut off.
- Electric emergency shut off valves – These kinds of emergency shut off valves need a source of electricity like batteries or an outlet. They can be installed on particular appliances like your laundry machine or water heater where they continually monitor the flow of water into the appliance and shut it down if it becomes too high.
