Earthquake Shut off Valves

In this page you will find all you need to know about Earthquake Shut off Valves | Los Angeles Installation Company

Do you have an earthquake valve, also known as a seismic valve? It provides an instant, automatic shut-off for low pressure regulated gas supply during a major earthquake and/or when the pipe is otherwise broken. It is a small device installed on the property gas meter, usually between the utility company’s metered installation and the structure piping. It works on both utility supplied natural gas and on gaseous liquified petroleum gas (aka LPG).

Utility companies recommend that you shut off your gas immediately after an earthquake, as fires or explosions due to gas line breaks can be more damaging than actual earthquakes themselves. If you are at work or away when an earthquake hits, you may not be able to get home in time. An earthquake valve will take care of this right away for you.

These devices should be installed by licensed contractors and cost anywhere from $300 to $1,550 per meter, including parts and labor.
