VALVES & PRESSURE REGULATORS
Blue Plumbing & Drain Cleaning service vehicles carry a wide variety of valves for residential plumbing needs. From entire house shut-off valves to water heater isolation valves, irrigation or individual fixture shut-offs.
Entire House Shut-Off Valves
When you need to turn the water off to your home in a hurry, the last thing you want is to be fumbling with a wrench, down on your knees at the water meter – in the dark.
Some structures are built with a “homeowner” shut-off valve for easier access, but most homes don’t have one. If you are fortunate enough to have one it is probably a ball valve type and is likely located in the garage or basement. Some other homes have a homeowner valve, but are installed in the ground near the water meter and can be difficult to reach. You may find them buried in a narrow tube often identified with a white plastic cap. Gate type valves can be difficult to turn, particularly as we get older.
The Solution …
Blue Plumbing & Drain Cleaning can install an entire house shut-off valve, a ball valve, that’s simple to use and easy to find when you really need one. Now you can have the
convenience and security of being able to turn your water off quickly and efficiently. Entire house shut-off valves also reduce the chances of a serious flood in your home. Being able to turn the water off quickly can make all the difference. Get more information. Speak to one of our pros at 928-775-9388. We’re Always Open.
Water Heater Isolation Valves
Many water heaters are installed with a valve that turns off only the hot water to your home (thus the term isolation valve) in the event of a problem with your heater. If you do not have a water heater isolation valve, we highly recommend having one installed.
Aside from potentially avoiding water damage, another benefit of having such a valve is that the cold water to your home can remain on, allowing you to flush toilets and so on, should you ever need your water heater serviced or replaced. Call for more information 928-775-9388
Pressure Reducing Valves
Did you know that water pressure from the city can vary? Pressure to your home can reach over 100 psi. This pressure places burdens on your piping and fixtures and can even cause leaks and damage.
If your home is not equipped with a Pressure Reducing Valve PRV, we recommend having one installed, or having your pressure tested. It could save your home from water damage.
