How Does It Work?
An automatic shut–off valve uses specialized sensors to detect seepage or leakage in your plumbing system. Once this sensor detects any kind of leaking, it shuts off the main water valve, turning the water off to your entire home. The system uses wireless communication. When the floor sensor detects a leak or seeping, it sends a message via its sensing pad to the control unit that activates a magnetic shutoff valve.
Many automatic shut–off valves come with a centralized control panel, making it extremely easy to set and manage, and many can also monitor your hydronic heating system components to turn off water in case pipes start to freeze. This kind of automatic monitoring means you don’t have to worry about coming home to a house full of water, whether you’ve been out to dinner or gone for the week.
What Kind of Leaks Can an Automatic Shut–Off Valve Stop?
An automatic shut–off valve can help prevent damage from all kinds of leaks and breaches in your plumbing system, including:
- Frozen pipes
- Problems with exterior pipes, like garden hoses
- Ruptured pipe lines
- Problems with hydronic heating systems
- Water–based problems that develop with water–using appliances like dishwashers
- Pinhole leaks
Why Is an Automatic Shut–Off Valve Important?
Water damage claims make up almost a third of all household insurance claims. Additionally, the average of these claims is pretty steep, coming in at over $7300. While your home insurance will cover a lot of the costs from water damage, it won’t cover them all. You’ll be paying out–of–pocket for your deductible and your home’s annual premium is likely to go up.
However, with an automatic shut–off valve installed by the plumbing experts at Cooling Unlimited, Inc., you can avoid these kinds of problems. Proper installation is the key, and when you hire our experts to install and/or service your automatic shut–off valve, you can rest assured that the work will be done to your complete satisfaction.
