Shut-Off Valve Services in Louisville & Lexington
If you need to work on a plumbing fixture, shower head, or leaky faucet, you shouldn’t have to turn off the water to the entire house. Shut-off valves allow you to turn the water off in specific areas of your home, giving you the freedom to perform certain plumbing tasks without the hassle of losing water in your home completely.
Any shut-off valve in your home, including the plumbing system’s main water shut-off valve, should be accessible and not buried deep inside a crawlspace. That way, if something were to go wrong, it can be easily accessed for repairs, maintenance, and replacements.
If you ever need a shut-off valve installed, repaired, or replaced, call Dauenhauer. We provide shut-off valve services Louisville and Lexington homeowners can trust. Give us a call today.
Professional Shut-Off Valve Installation Services
Residential plumbing fixtures like toilets or faucets are typically installed with shut-off valves, also known as angle stops. These valves can be found behind your toilet or inside your vanity cabinet. Sinks in your house typically have two valves, one each for cold and hot water.
Large appliances like washing machines or dishwashers often have shut-off valves as well. Most shut-off valves are screwed on, though some are soldered directly to the pipe. All shut-off valves have compression fittings to connect firmly to the fixture.
Whether you’re looking to have your shut-off valves replaced, or you need new valves installed for a remodel project, Dauenhauer is here for you. Our professional plumbers can handle all shut-off valve installation services in Lexington and Louisville.
Expert Shut-Off Valve Repair Services
Over time, shut-off valves can incur damage. It isn’t unusual for a shut-off valve to leak due to corrosion, which increases the chances of water damage to your home or personal items. Additionally, while defective shut-off valves are highly uncommon, they can occur from time to time.
If you notice leaking from any shut-off valve in your home, including the main line shut-off valve, it’s important to have it repaired as soon as possible. Water can damage your cabinetry and flooring, and cause mold and mildew to grow.
Instead, call the experts at Dauenhauer for shut-off valve repair services.
Moving Your Main Water Shut-Off Valve
Is your main water shut-off valve in a difficult-to-reach location? Some older homes have these valves located in strange places that are difficult to get to, such as in a crawl space. If you have a plumbing emergency and need to shut off your water, you need to be able to get to your main water shut-off valve quickly before serious water flooding and damage can occur.
We can move the main water shut-off valve to your home’s main floor, making it much easier to access quickly. Usually, this involves placing it in a small box in a closet or other unobtrusive area.
Call Dauenhauer if you need professional plumbers to move your main water shut-off valve, or provide other shut-off valve services in Lexington or Louisville.
