Seismic Valve Replacement


California sits right on the San Andreas Fault Line, meaning frequent earthquakes are just a part of life here. If you live in the area long enough, you’re guaranteed to experience at least a minor earthquake. That’s why it became law in the year 2000 for all new constructions in California to have a seismic valve installed on the gas meter. A seismic valve will automatically shut off your gas line if it senses a large enough earthquake, protecting your home from dangerous gas leaks.

If your seismic valve is damaged or otherwise broken, your home is vulnerable to dangerous gas line damage. Count on Gotelli Plumbing for seismic valve replacement and repair in the Borth Bay Area.

Why You Need a Seismic Valve

Seismic valves are essential safety features that you must have if you live in California. You need a seismic valve, also known as an earthquake valve, if you want to protect your home from gas leaks and devastating fires after an earthquake. Natural gas is incredibly flammable and explosive, and it can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. While it’s a perfectly safe power source when handled correctly, natural gas is unpredictable and dangerous when released into the air in your home — one spark could cause a fire.

Seismic valves are required in every building because they prevent potentially disastrous gas leaks in the event of an earthquake. Otherwise, hidden gas line damage may cause dangerous gas leaks that could cause damage to your home and to your health. Think of seismic valves are like safety nets for California homes.

Recognizing a Gas Leak

In the event that your seismic valve fails and a gas leak occurs, it’s important to recognize the signs of natural gas in your home. You may have a gas leak if you notice:

  • The smell of rotten eggs
  • Visible damage to the gas line
  • Hissing noises near the gas line
  • Dying houseplants
  • Bubbles in your water
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms in your or your pets

If you notice any of these signs, evacuate the home immediately and call 911 and your gas company. Then, call the plumbers at Gotelli for seismic valve replacement.

Quick Response Time

The response from Gotelli Plumbing was excellent. The next time Tom arrived right on time and the quality of his work was outstanding.

I’m so thankful to have such professionals available when need and on such short notice.

Excellent Service

Tom provided excellent service. He is obviously experienced- and quickly solved the problem. Our gas had to be shut off, so we were without our stove to cook, furnace to heat and hot water. Our home is happy again!
