Easily Accessible Water Main Valve
Having an easy to access water main valve is a must for all homes and businesses. They are especially helpful for summer and vacation homes that need to be winterized or opened for the season. Being able to turn off your water main in a matter of seconds can save you time and aggravation, especially in an emergency situation, saving you thousands from damages to the house's interior. Some other advantages of an easy access water main valve include: turning the water off when you leave for several days to prevent the possibility of an emergency; handicapped individuals that can not get into a cramped crawl space; crawl spaces in areas with heavy snowfall can hamper access to the main water valve. Most people do not want to crawl under their house, especially those with claustrophobia or arachnophobia.
