Automatic Shut–Off Valve Services

Most plumbing problems stem from the collateral damage they can cause: flooding, leaking or water basically going where you don’t want it to. Nothing can make a homeowner panic more than watching a toilet overflow, or seeing water slowly spread out from under their sink across their kitchen floor. You can shut off the water in those situations – either to the individual appliance or to the whole house – but they can take time to get to and may be exceedingly difficult in the event of a breach. This is of particular concern here in Bristol, CT, because periodic flooding and heavy rains can wreak havoc with our plumbing system. The solution is an automatic shut–off valve, installed by the pros at Dynamic Mechanical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning and ready to step in the minute there’s a problem. Give us a call today and let us spell out the options for you. You’ll be glad you did!

How Do Automatic Shut–Off Valves Work?

Automatic shut–off valves see use in fuel lines for gas and the like as well as plumbing. They work through the use of a small sensor that detects water leakage or overflow. If it detects water spreading where it shouldn’t, it sends an electrical signal to a magnetic valve that seals the pipe and shuts off the flow of water. They appear in specific devices such as dishwashers and washing machines, but can also be used in larger plumbing system. Call Dynamic Mechanical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning today for more details. We can find the right one for your system and install it with pride.

What Are the Benefits?

Here in Bristol, CT, you don’t know when a flood or backflow is going to turn your plumbing system into a nightmare. Furthermore, plumbing problems rarely announce themselves before spilling water everywhere, and can often occur at night when you’re asleep or during working hours when you’re out of the house. An automatic shut–off valve removes all those worries, ensuring that you’re alerted to the problem even as it turns off the water and prevents further damage to your home. Even in less catastrophic circumstances, the shut–off valve can earn its keep: preventing backflow caused by clogs or other minor nuisances associated with your plumbing system. When floods wreak havoc with local sewer systems, it’s there for you too, and keeps the damage from affecting your home. The pros at Dynamic Mechanical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning can explain more, so give us a call today!

Why Can’t I Just Install One Myself?

Theoretically, automatic shut–off valves can be self–installed, but even robust do–it–yourselfers in Bristol, CT would be well–advised to contact the professional plumbers at Dynamic Mechanical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning to do the job properly. A poorly installed automatic shut–off valve could leak or work imperfectly, meaning that it won’t be there when you need it to. An improper installation likely means you’ll need to call a plumber anyway to handle the leaks or other problems, and will probably cost you more if any further damage has been inflicted. Professional services have the skills to perform the job properly, and you can rest easier knowing that the shut–off valve will respond as it should the first time, every time.
