Why You Should Have an Automatic Shutoff Valve

Why You Should Have an Automatic Shutoff Valve

An automatic shutoff valve is a small optional plumbing component that takes a short time to install but can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. We urge homeowners to know the location of their water shutoff valves in case of a pipe bursting anywhere on the property, in order to minimize flooding. But what if you cannot get to the valve in time, or what if no one is home to notice the leak at all? That’s where an automatic shutoff valve comes in handy.

What is an automatic shutoff valve?

An automatic shutoff valve is designed to detect leaks, perhaps faster than you can detect them yourself. Once it does, it cuts off the flow of water so that your home is no longer at risk of flooding. Some systems use water pressure to detect a change in the pipes. Others use sensors that detect water.

It’s important that you call a plumber for installation and to ensure that the sensors are in the right location and that the valve will shut when you need to stop the water flow. Automatic water shutoff valves are not standard in all plumbing systems, but they are a useful tool for any homeowner.
