WHY YOU NEED A DEPENDABLE LOCAL SHUT OFF
Here are a few reasons why you want your local shut off valve to work when you need it.
1.SIMPLE ACCESS DURING MAJOR RENOVATIONS
In circumstances when you are having a major home renovation completed and pipes are being moved or replaced, then the main water shut off comes into play. When the work is in a specific area or appliance the main valve won’t need to be accessed only the one specific to the appliance.
2.BUILDING CODE PREREQUISITE
Shut offs at fixtures are required by many building codes, and have become standard given their efficacy and accessibility.
If you ever have a fixture such as your toilet or faucet that’s leaking or obstructed or just not working correctly, having a cut off valve for the feature allows you to quickly shut off the water to the fixture without shutting down your complete plumbing. This helps with keeping the problem contained.
