It only takes a few minutes for leaking gas from a ruptured or disconnected gas line to burst into flames or explode. Safety should be top priority for you and your home and as residents of Southern California, preparation is key.
Types of Shut-Off Valves
There are two types of earthquake shut-off valves:
- Earthquake Natural Gas Shut-Off Valve: Automatically shuts off your natural gas service when an earthquake of a sufficient magnitude occurs at your home.
- Excess Flow Valve: Automatically shuts off your gas when a significant gas leak or overpressure surge occurs at a pipe or appliance beyond the valve.
Installing your shut-off valve requires a licensed plumber. Units must be installed properly according to the manufacturer's instructions and also installed on the proper line.
Resetting A Valve
In the event that your shut-off valve is triggered, It is very important to have a qualified professional or your gas company first perform a safety check to verify that there aren't any gas leaks or any other issues.
