Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Water Main Shut Off Tags

Water pipes can burst for a wide variety of reasons.  The most common reasons include:

  • Water Pressure Changes
  • Frozen Pipes
  • Corrosion
  • Moving Pipes

But no matter what causes the burst pipe, getting to the water shut off valve quickly and shutting off the water supply is key.  The longer water flows, the more damage will be done and the costlier the clean up and mitigation will be.  This is especially true in commercial buildings where a single pipe can be expected to supply enough water to suppress a fire in a million square foot building.  Millions of gallons of water could potentially be gushing out every minute. 

As discussed in previous blog posts, our sales team would love to help you prepare for such a disaster with an ERP (Emergency Ready Plan).  An ERP will provide a map of the property showing where things like the water shut off valves are. 

Our Water Main Shut Off Tags are also helpful.  They are bright orange and they make spotting the valve particularly easy.  And while the ERP will also contain essential phone numbers during a disaster, our Water Main Shut Off Tags put our phone number right at your fingertips.  Because a prompt response can make all of the difference for your home or business. 

If you would like your own Water Main Shut Off Tag/s, call or stop by our office.  (920) 832-1110
