Edmonton Shut-Off Valve Installation

When it comes to a plumbing emergency, you must know where your home’s main shut-off valve is that controls your home’s water supply. Every home needs a main shut-off valve, whether inside the home or outside it. This device is located on the main water supply line and is used to stop the flow of water into your home in case of an emergency. When it comes to an Edmonton shut-off valve installation, you need a professional Edmonton plumber to come in to handle the process.

If you're looking to install a shut-off valve on your water supply, then look no further than the expert plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Edmonton.

Edmonton Shut-Off Valve Installation Services from A Licensed Plumber

When it comes to installing a shutoff valve on your main water line, it's important to have a plumbing expert handle the process. Having a water valve installed gives you more control over your water, especially during an emergency. Water valves can be installed on singular appliances, but there's a main shut-off valve for your home's entire water supply. We can assist with the installation of both options.

Our plumbing professionals have the experience and knowledge needed to:

  • Properly conduct an Edmonton shut-off valve installation if your home doesn't have one. If your home doesn't have one, it's highly unusual as building codes dictate that these valves be installed, but it can happen.
  • If you've noticed that your shut-off valves are leaking, our professional plumbers can repair it. Additionally, if you did use it to shut off your home's water supply, and it failed to completely stop the flow of water, we can help with that as well.
  • We can replace your water shut-off valve if it's been damaged beyond repair. If you have a faulty valve or one that's rusty, corroded, or out-of-date, we can replace it with a new one.

How We Perform an Edmonton Shut-Off Valve Installation Service

You likely have questions about how an installation, repair, or replacement can be done to your main water shut-off valve. After all, it's installed on the main water line that supplies water to your home. Thus, how do you stop the flow of water if the valve that's used to stop it is being worked on?

There should be another point that can exert control over water flow. That would be an exterior shut-off valve.

Depending on the water supply to your home, the valve might be located somewhere different. If you're connected to a municipal water supply, then there's a shut-off valve that's located where your home's water line meets the municipal water supply line. Alternatively, if you're connected to a well, there should be a mechanism of some kind that will turn off the well pump.

To properly service your valve during a shut-off valve installation, you’ll have to get the utility provider to shut off the exterior shut-off valve, which will turn off the water supply there, or turn off the well pump if you have one. What this does is it allows your plumber to drain your pipes and perform work without flooding your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Edmonton Shut-Off Valve Installation

Where is the emergency shut-off valve typically located?

Your home's emergency water shut-off valve will be located inside the house, usually in the basement mechanical room. If you're struggling to find where your home's shut-off valve is, contact us for some helpful tips. It may be behind a finished wall, but it can usually be tracked backwards from your water heater.

How do I recognize a main line shut-off valve?

If you need help with recognizing what your main water line shut-off valve looks like, look for a slightly large pipe that has a handle stuck in the middle of it. The valve itself will look something like a lever or a round handle. You'll be able to recognize the shut-off valve because the lever attaches to the pipe. It's not connected to another fixture or a nearby faucet.

What is an automatic water shut-off valve?

Automatic shut-off valves utilize sensors to detect leaks or major fluctuations in water pressure. Once the sensor has been triggered, it automatically stops the flow of water into your home. These devices are particularly useful if you're out of the house often for long periods (or on an extended vacation) because they can help prevent major water damage from occurring.

How do I turn off the water supply with the shut-off valve?

There are two common types of water shut-off valves: ball valves and gate valves. Ball valve handles run parallel along your water line when they're open; to close them, move the handle so that it's perpendicular to the water line, or forms a T-shape. That will stop your water supply.

Gate valves, alternatively, require that you turn them until the flow of water is blocked. The "gate" describes the method by which the valve blocks the flow of water. Turning the valve will cause the gate to close, stopping the flow of water into your home. Clockwise turns will close the valve, and counterclockwise will open it.
