Automatic Shut–Off Valves in Naples, FL

Flooding is a concern in Florida because of heavy rains and frequent tropical storms. But these aren’t the only sources of flooding in homes. Something as simple as a busted pipe or fixture can send water cascading into the crawlspace and the living spaces of a home, inflicting serious damage that requires expensive restoration. The flooding can also destroy valuable, irreplaceable items.

You can guard against these plumbing accidents with an automatic shut-off valve. Since the greatest danger from flooding problems occurs when nobody is home, these valves are designed to close off water flow to the house from the water main as soon as flooding is detected. You can leave your home empty for long stretches without the concern of returning to a flooded dwelling.

To arrange for an automatic shut-off valve installation, as well as other services, contact Bruno Total Home Performance in Naples, FL. Our customer-focused approach and thorough service training at Bruno University set us apart from the competition.

Do I Really Need an Emergency Shut–Off Valve?

Simply put: yes. We recommend all homes in Naples, FL and elsewhere in the Central and Southwest parts of the state arrange for us to install an automatic shut–off valve for their residential plumbing. Along with a sump pump, which pumps out excess water from a crawlspace, this shut–off valve is an essential part of defending a house from water damage. It’s not only excellent protection, it’s also a way to provide peace of mind. When you go on an extended vacation with your family, leaving the house empty, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy your time away without worrying about a plumbing disaster striking in your absence.

How an Automatic Shut–Off Valve Works

The operation of an emergency shut–off valve is basic: it’s attached to the point where the water main enters the indoor plumbing. When the valve receives an electronic signal, it shuts and seals off the water from continuing to enter the plumbing system, thus halting any flooding from a plumbing trouble.

Where does this signal come from? I.e. how does the valve "know" flooding is happening? There are different methods. One is the valve detects an increase in water flow, indicating a large water loss that’s likely due to a broken pipe or fixtures. Another method is sensors placed on mats where flooding might occur. The sensors detect the presence of water and send the signal to shut the valve.

We Can Protect Your Home with Automatic Shut–Off Valve Services

If you don’t already have an emergency shut–off valve in place, there’s no time like the present to call Bruno Total Home Performance and schedule installation. At least have one put in before your next vacation (although flooding can occur even during a day when you’re only away at work). For homes already protected with an automatic shut–off valve, we provide regular inspections as part of maintenance: you want to know each year that your shut–off valve is ready to perform its job.

We stay on the cutting edge of technology to provide the best plumbing services to Naples, FL and the surrounding areas. Your safety and comfort is our top priority.
