Protect Your Home from Expensive Water Damage
Do you know how to shut off your home’s primary water supply? In case there is an emergency with the water lines in your home, this is something every homeowner should be able to do. Every home should have a main shut-off valve installed, and if it needs to be fixed or replaced for any given reason, Big Blue Plumbing is here to help. We offer main shut-off valve replacement services in Oakland and Alameda to help homeowners protect their properties from excessive water damage.
We have experience servicing all types of valves, including:
- Gate valves
- Ball valves
- Glove valves
- Pressure-reducing valves
- Butterfly valves
- Fixture shut-off valves
- Check valves
Though these valves are rarely used, they are very important and can mean the difference between extensive damage and just a little water on the floor. That’s why it is important that they are checked routinely to make sure they are in good working order. In many homes, these valves might be the same ones that were installed when the home was built. Over time, they can start to leak and will need to be replaced. Our Oakland plumbers have the experience needed to make sure your valve is always in good condition.

Full Home Plumbing Inspection
In the event of a plumbing emergency, when a pipe is burst and flooding a house at 15 gallons a minute, every second that it takes to locate and turn off the main water supply is crucial. Many homes have old “GATE” valves, the ones with the round handle that take multiple turns to shut off. Some of these have not been operated in years and when you need them, they just don’t turn! A lot of older homes have valves that are buried, hidden in crawl spaces, or just not there at all.
Big Blue installs all brass, full port “E-Z TURN” valves that have real, positive shut-off so the water supply to the home can be turned off simply and efficiently with minimum effort. The installation of a quality, working whole-home shut off valve could be the most important part of your plumbing system.
