Shut–Off Valve Services in St. Louis, MO
It can be a daunting thing to wake up one morning to find water flowing across your kitchen floor or otherwise pouring from an unexpected leak. It’s doubly important during the winter here in St. Louis, MO, when frozen pipes and burst pipes are a real danger to your home or business.
Emergency shut-off valves are a good way to prevent such problems from causing more damage than they should. They automatically respond to conditions such as pressure changes in your plumbing lines to seal the pipes shut and reduce the flow of water to nothing. They work especially well in vacation homes or places that aren’t occupied for extended periods of time. Call the friendly pros at Performance Plumbing for quality installation, replacement and repair of shut-off valves in your home or business throughout the St. Louis, MO area.
Types of Shut–Off Valve
Every home and business is different in St. Louis, MO, and therefore there are a variety of emergency shut–off valves available to install to meet your particular needs. This is one of the reasons why a trained plumber should perform the operation: their expertise can help you determine which valve works best for you. They can include the following:
- Pressure Reducing Valves. Pressure reducing valves or pressure regulating valves equalize the pressure in the pipes to prevent backflow and wasted water.
- Ball Valve Shut–Offs. Ball valves use a floating ball to seal the valve shut when the handle is turned.
- Saddle Valves. Saddle valves mount the line from both sides, and are often used in cold water supplies.
