and Air announced today that beginning immediately they will be offering
earthquake activated shut off valves to all of their customers. “In the event
of an earthquake triggered gas leak, these valves can be a huge life saver”,
said Anderson. “Regardless if people are home or not, in the event of a large
earthquake, a spring loaded valve would trip and shut the gas off immediately.
This could prevent a large gas leak…or worse a life threatening fire or explosion”,
The earthquake valve has some other advantages as well that can serve
the customer in non-emergency situations. The valve can easily be reset
by reactivating the sensor located on the wall. A push button shut off is a
convenience for the customer even for routine repairs. The spring loaded
technology is designed to avoid any false set-offs.
“In a state where there are over 200 seismic faults that are capable of producing
an earthquake of 6 .0 or higher, an earthquake shut off valve is probably one of
the best steps that you can take”, said Mary Jean. “In fact many cities across
California are beginning to require them for new construction or remodels.”
As you might expect training is of utmost importance when it comes to proper
installation. “All of our plumbers go through a special hands-on training course
to make sure that when we install a valve in your home, it is done correctly”, said
