Emergency Shut-Offs and New Technology
When plumbing issues arise, it can be scary to think that you won’t be around to turn off the water valve and prevent serious damage to your home. One of the most common tips homeowners receive in the event of a plumbing emergency is to shut off the water valve. When this isn’t readily available to you, what do you do? With some new technology, you can shut the water off in an emergency using your WiFi.
Some new shut-off valves feature floor sensors so when a leak is detected in the home, the water will immediately shut off. You don’t have to be home to ensure that a leak won’t cause flooding or damage to the structure of your home.
Most new technologies allow you to connect to the shut-off remotely so wherever you are, if you receive warning of a leak in your home, you can trigger it to close immediately. This means the water stops flowing and your home is safe from any further problems, letting you have peace of mind that nothing will damage the rest of your plumbing or your home’s structure.
