Shut Off Valves For Your Orange County Home
Shut off valves keep small inconveniences from becoming big problems. Each plumbing fixture in your home should have a shut off valve on the hot and cold supply lines. In the event of a failure such as a leaking water heater or burst pipe, you can isolate and shut off the supply of water in that area without disrupting the rest of your home. Most new homes constructed have these valves nearby such as under the sink or just behind the toilet. If they are no longer in good working condition they should be replaced.
Older homes may have the fixtures hard plumbed without any shut off valves. In these homes a failed pipe or even just a simple fixture replacement will require the water supply for the entire house to be shut off. At best this is very inconvenient and at worst a lot of water damage can occur before the water main is closed. Fortunately shut off valves are inexpensive and easy for a plumbing professional to install.
