Automatic Shut–Off Valve Services in Collinsville, IL by Embrich Plumbing Co
It isn’t just a creative television commercial: people really do come home to plumbing disasters because of broken pipes and other plumbing malfunctions. The longer you’ve been away, the worse the damage will be. There can be any number of reasons for a plumbing failure, but the key is shutting down the water before it can blossom into a gigantic mess. One of the best ways to make sure this happens is with an automatic shut-off valve.
Just as a circuit breaker immediately cuts off all electricity to a circuit, an automatic shut-off valve will immediately shut down the main water valve in your home once it detects a problem. Imagine the amount of heartache, time and money you can save just from having a protective valve like this in your home.
Call Embrich Plumbing Co when you need installation or service for your shut-off valve in Collinsville, IL.
WHY CONSIDER THE INSTALLATION OF AN AUTOMATIC SHUT–OFF VALVE?
Most people’s plumbing resides behind walls, under floors and above ceilings. This makes it hard to see or be aware that a problem has developed with your system. In fact, you may not know you have a problem until water comes crashing down from a ceiling, and this is not a scenario any homeowner wants to endure. An automatic shut–off valve is equipped with sensors that detect imbalances in your plumbing system and water leakage.
Different products have different capabilities, but each is designed to protect your home from major water damage. It is important to remember that water damage often extends far past the plumbing equipment or materials. It can damage your walls, your ceilings, your floors, fixtures, furniture – even your foundation if that is where the leak is located. Your home is one of your greatest investments, and you can take a big step in its protection when you allow the experts from Embrich Plumbing Co to install an automatic shut–off valve.
WHAT KINDS OF LEAKS CAN AN AUTOMATIC SHUT–OFF VALVE DETECT?
A lot of different plumbing problems can develop without detection in your home. An automatic shut–off valve can be the "eyes" you need for your plumbing system in Collinsville:
- Ruptured lines
- Leaking boilers
- Malfunctioning dishwashers and washing machines
- Frozen pipes
- Pinhole leaks
- Hydronic radiant heating systems
- Exterior water pipes
WHY CAN’T I INSTALL IT MYSELF?
The installation of a whole home automatic shut–off valve involves two major systems of your home: your electrical system and your plumbing system. Handling these systems with inexpert hands can mean damaging the valve, damaging one of the systems and/or putting yourself at risk due to safety issues. None of these potential problems are worth the few dollars you may save by not hiring a trained expert to install your valve.
