How much do your trust the plumbing in your house? Are you worried that you’ll take a vacation for a week, only to return home to discover a busted dishwasher line has flooded parts of your home? Even if you think your plumbing is in great shape, this kind of disaster can still strike when you least expect it. And it’s common as well: water damages due to plumbing accidents are among the most frequently filed claims on homeowner insurance policies. But with an automatic shut off valve, you can do something about this flooding before it happens.

Should You Have an Automatic Shut Off Valve Installed?
When considering the answer to this question, think about all the ways flooding in your home can create damage and cost money. Plumbing failures can occur in multiple places in a home, such as a ruptured washing machine hose, an overflowing toilet, leaks in the water heater, or breaks in the water supply line. The resulting influx of water, whether happening over only an hour or across several days can inflict enormous damage to a home’s substructure, ruin your furnishings and irreplaceable belongings, and leaving behind humid conditions that will lead to hazardous mold growth.
When you add all this up, a basic device like an automatic shut off valve makes an enormous amount of sense. Best of all, it’ll give you peace of mind whenever you leave your house that it’s protected from plumbing disasters. In short, all homes should have shut off valves, including yours.
How an Emergency Shut Off Valve Works
Automatic shut off valves can operate in different ways. One type uses a sensor that detects water seepage on the floor, while others monitor water pressure within the water supply line for sudden changes. Whenever the system detects a possible leak, it closes a magnetic valve on the supply line to shut off the water flow into the house. Advanced models will then send a signal to a display in the house altering the homeowner about what has occurred. If your shut off valve activates, you should immediately call for a professional plumber to find out where there is leaking in the plumbing and have it repaired.
