Kristopher Chana, founder of Plumb Off Valve Distributors, understands the importance of his product in today's market. A victim of more than five floods himself; Chana designed a product that fit into a homeowner's everyday life. "When consumers leave their house, they turn off their lights and lock their door. The Plumb Off valve system offers consumers a simple and effective way to shut off their water supply while they are not home," Chana said. The Plumb Off valve system offers homeowners a way to shut off their water supply with a simple flip of a switch. The valve system is connected to the main water line and attached to a switch.
To introduce the product, Plumb Off Valve Distributors installed the valve system in various households nationwide. After several successful trial runs, the valve system was introduced into the market in early 2011.
"Not only is Plumb Off Valve Distributors aiding in the prevention of property damage, the Plumb Off valve system helps to conserve water as well," said Chana. Leaky plumbing can cause thousands of dollars of damage within minutes. According to the Insurance Information Institute, the average claim for water damage nationwide is over $5,000. In many states, like the state of Florida, the average claim is well over $6,000. Because water damage is a leading source of home insurance claims, many insurance companies are beginning to recommend water shut off valve systems to their homeowner customers. Some insurance agencies may even offer discounts to homeowners who install the Plumb Off valve system in their homes.
The system costs around $350 and labor could cost up to $300 more. "We recommend that the Plumb Off valve system be installed by a certified plumber and in accordance with all local plumbing codes," added Chana. Plumb Off Valve Distributors is working with local contractors in helping to train plumbers and electricians to install the valve system.
The Plumb Off valve system will be on display April 15, 2011 through April 17, 2011 at the Central Florida Home & Garden Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
