Automatic Shutoff Valve Services in Cincinnati, OH by Ken Neyer Plumbing, Inc.
In any plumbing emergency, the first thing that should be done is to shut off the water. The water shutoff valve controls the flow of water through the water line, which feeds the entire plumbing system. If the valve is shut, the water stops flowing and whatever plumbing emergency is currently occurring can be mitigated until it is fixed. The problem with the water shutoff valve is two-fold. First, most homeowners don’t even know where their water shutoff valves are. Second, plenty of plumbing emergencies may happen while homeowners are asleep, away, or otherwise unable to reach the shutoff valve. The way to deal with these issues is to install an automatic shutoff valve in your home. If you need one installed or serviced, call Ken Neyer Plumbing, Inc. today. We offer comprehensive solutions to your problems.

What is an Automatic Shutoff Valve?
An automatic shutoff valve is installed in the water line. The difference between this and any other is that the automatic shutoff valve monitors the plumbing system at all times. If there is a sudden change in the system, such as might be caused by a pipe rupture, the valve automatically closes and cuts off the flow of water into the home. This is how it protects against water damage, even if you aren’t around to manually shut off the water.
Why Automatic Shutoff Valves Are Necessary
As mentioned above, most people aren’t able to actually reach their manual water shutoff valves in time to prevent catastrophic water damage. There are many reasons for this, but the results are the same: thousands of dollars spent on water damage remediation that could have been saved had the water been turned off in time. Just a small amount of water damage in the wrong location can have drastic effects. Something as small as a leak in the toilet seal can flood an entire floor of the house if left alone for long enough.
An auto shutoff ensures that no matter what the plumbing emergency is, the water damage will be as limited as possible. It can react faster than any human, and though it may not be able to fix the problem itself for you it can take care of one of the most important steps.

We also service, repair, and replace these units. For the most part, your valve shouldn’t need any serious repair or maintenance efforts.
