Are You Worried About Water Heater Leaks? Call O’Bryan Plumbing Services
The combination of water and the minerals that it contains can be highly corrosive to appliances like water heaters. After many years of use, the storage tank inside can deteriorate to the point that the water heater starts leaking, potentially flooding your home and creating long-term problems like mold growth or rotten wood framing.
One of the best ways to minimize the damage from water heater leaks is with an automatic flood stop shutoff valve. Installed on the main water line just before the water heater, this device has a sensor that can detect a water leak, as well as a powered shutoff valve that can automatically turn the water supply off when a leak is present. This can significantly reduce damage, and at O’Bryan Plumbing Services, we install automatic flood stop shutoff valves throughout Plano, Allen, and the surrounding areas. With more than 35 years of professional plumbing experience, we can help with all your residential or commercial plumbing needs.

The Benefits of an Automatic Flood Stop Shutoff Valve
By using a combination of innovative technologies, automatic flood stop shutoff valves can greatly reduce the amount of damage when water heaters or similar appliances spring a leak. They provide several benefits, including:
- Automatic shutoff when leaks are detected – When a leak is detected, these flood prevention devices can automatically turn off the water supply at the water heater to limit damage.
- Battery backup for power outages – Most automatic flood stop shutoff valves offer a battery backup so that they can operate while the power is out, and the battery backup can last for up to a year.
- Reduced damage to your home – A large leak in a water heater can damage drywall, carpeting, wood framing, insulation and more, making such valves a small investment compared to the replacement costs of these materials.
- Simple installation – Automatic flood stop shutoff valves can be installed in less than an hour by a professional plumber, with only minor changes to your plumbing system.
