Prevent Flooding in Your Home
An automatic water shut off valve controls a single water line or the whole house’s water supply to shut the water flow off to the line using a shutoff valve. It is triggered by a water sensor placed on the floor to detect water leaks near appliances that use water. It may be your refrigerator, ice machine, washing machine, toilet, or dishwasher that all use water.
How It Works
The system uses a control panel that plugs into a standard outlet in your home. By using a transformer to supply power to control the valve or valves, the system is an automatic watchdog for you and your home. It uses a sensor that is placed on the floor in the general area of the appliance that will detect a leak and send an electrical signal to a control unit that activates a magnetic shutoff valve. This valve closes and stops the flow of water through the line to the appliance. The valve is connected to the waterline that it is to protect.
Things to Consider
Although you may be home to detect such a leak, you may also be gone from your home for long periods of time or away from vacation when an undetected leak can cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars of damage to your home.
Peace of Mind
If you want to install a whole-house system, it is available. This type of system incorporates many sensors throughout the home that are connected to a single water shutoff valve connected to the incoming water line of the house. If any leak is detected by any of the sensors, the water supply is shut off. If you want to know your home is protected from unwanted water leaks and damage, this is the system for you! A small investment now can save you a lot later. Are you ready for an automatic water shutoff valve?
Keep in Mind
In general, water damage from a burst pipe inside your home will be covered by a standard homeowners' insurance policy. If an outside pipe bursts and causes damage that should be covered, too, though you must be able to demonstrate that the damage did indeed come from the burst pipe. If the insurer concludes that poor drainage - a noncovered maintenance problem - was the real culprit, your claim may be denied. Your water-damage claim also might be denied if your insurer concludes that you are responsible for the pipe bursting in the first place.
Most pipes that burst do so because they freeze. If you left your home unheated during freezing weather, your insurer can cite your negligence as a reason for denying your claim. Even if your insurer does pay for the water damage, it may refuse to pay to repair the pipe itself. Insurance doesn't cover normal wear and tear on a home. If the pipe burst simply because it was old and corroded, or because it was attached to an appliance that malfunctioned, that might count as normal wear and tear. Your personal insurance agent can answer specific questions regarding your own home, coverage’s and limitations.
Turn Valves On and Off
Turn main water supply and fixture valves on and off periodically to make sure they don't get stuck. You want to be sure you're never in the position of not being able to turn your water supply off during an emergency or home plumbing repair.
Repair Leaking Faucets
Leaking faucets are not only a nuisance, they can also cause gallons of water to be wasted over time. Leaking faucets with washer fittings can be fixed by replacing the washer. If you have a faucet that doesn't use a washer, check the faucet's manual or consult a specialist.
Inspect Pipes Annually
You should examine your distribution and drainage pipes for signs of leaks each year. You may find clues that your pipes are leaking along the length of the pipe or around fittings or fixtures. Signs of leaks may include rust, corrosion, and mineral deposits.

Best company I have ever worked for. I honestly sleep better at night knowing I'm not over charging customers.
Thank you so much for helping me two times when I really needed help. I'll soon be 85 years old and you are the nicest company I have ever used. I will certainly pass this on. The two young men you sent out were so nice and helpful. They were also so personable and I really appreciated how friendly they were.
We all know that no one wants to call the plumber because that means problems. When we began having some plumbing issues we call AAA Upstate Plumbing. The appointment was scheduled several days ahead and Mike arrive promptly at 7:25 am for a 7:30 am appt. After seeing that the problem was larger than we anticipated, he called his associate who came and together they quickly assessed where the problem was, and proceeded to make the repairs in a prompt and professional manner. This was on a Friday and Mike assured me several times during the day that they would not leave without the repairs being completed. Both Mike and Alberto were professional, courteous and hardworking. Bill and I could not have been more pleased. Thank you AAA Upstate Plumbing, Mike and Alberto. You certainly earned a AAA rating at our home.
Just a quick note to say "thank you" for taking care of our plumbing issue last week. I really appreciate all that you did for me. Your kindness means more than you'll ever know.
I want to thank you for the prompt and excellent work you did for me. After living in Ft. Lauderdale for 33 years and having a plumber whom I could trust I was worried about finding someone here in Greenville that would be as reliable. I called your business, AAA Upstate Plumbing, when I noticed my toilet making a running sound. You came out immediately and fixed it! I mentioned to you I would like a toilet and sink put in my powder room and within a couple of days it was completed perfectly! You and your staff were professional, helpful, polite and did exceptional work – thank you! I'm looking forward to working with you on my next plumbing project.
I wanted to say thank you very much for all of your help with our hot water heater and clogged sink disposal. Your generosity and help mean more than words can express! Every one that has come out to the house has been so kind and does an excellent job of fixing the problem. We recommend your business every chance we get and will continue to do so!
Just wanted to say thank you again for everything. My wife and I could not be happier with how it turned out!
I can't thank you enough for all your help in replacing our hot water heater. I hate that the manufacturer was so difficult to deal with but I appreciate your patience and due diligence.
