Earthquake Shut-off Valve | Install Earthquake Shut-off Valve
How to Protect Your Home During an Earthquake.
Earthquakes, no matter how “minor”, are enough to send shivers up and down your spine. They’re also just cause to be concerned about the safety of your home and family.
For example, an earthquake’s seismic activity can damage your home’s foundation. In the process, it also can damage your pipes, gas pipes included. And that’s a serious safety issue.
Well, Plumbtastic can help alleviate that concern by installing an earthquake shutoff valve. They have a single but highly important function: to automatically shut off the flow of your natural gas service.
Two Types of Earthquake Shut-off Valves
There are two types of shut-off valves…for maximum safety, we recommend the installation of both types.
- Seismic Natural Gas Shut-Off Valve: When an earthquake hits 5.4 or higher on the Richter Scale, the valve will shut off your natural gas service from the street to your meter.
- Excess-Flow Valve: Excess-flow valves should be installed at your gas main and at each location where gas feeds an appliance or outdoor grill.

Lightning may not strike twice in the same spot, but there’s no such rule of thumb regarding earthquakes…especially in Southern California.
And then there’s the concept of “second chances”. As in, all it takes is one earthquake, and one gas fire or explosion to cause devastating damage that can alter the course of your life.
For good measure, many local cities and towns require shut-off valves before a building permit can be obtained or during a home inspection.
So, why not stay ahead of the game and contact Plumbtastic today for an in-home inspection and earthquake-shut off valve inspection. While your family’s comfort and convenience are important to us, nothing ranks higher than safety.
