Earthquake Shut-Off Valves in the Inland Empire
Protecting Your Property when the Next Earthquake Strikes
Californians know that earthquakes are more a matter of “when” than “if” and though it’s impossible to predict when the next earthquake might occur, there are still certain steps you can take to protect your home and your property.
One such way to guard your home against earthquake damage is to have an earthquake shut-off valve installed. These valves detect the intensity of an earthquake when it happens and automatically shut off the gas valve on your property if the intensity reaches a 5.4 or higher on the Richter Scale. When you need an earthquake shut-off valve in the Inland Empire, you can rely on Schuelke Plumbing for high-quality installation and maintenance. We offer outstanding services at affordable rates for your peace of mind.

What is an Earthquake Shut-Off Valve?
Earthquake shut-off valves, also known as seismic valves, regulate the supply of gas in the event of an earthquake. The valve is installed directly on your gas meter and uses motion sensor technology to automatically shut off your property’s natural gas supply if an earthquake causes a gas leak.
What Are the Dangers of Having a Gas Leak?
Gas leaks are incredibly dangerous, but they are not always immediately detectable, especially if you are just recovering from an earthquake.
A gas leak on your property can cause:
- Chest pain
Even smaller gas leaks can cause adverse effects like nausea, fatigue, chest pain, memory loss, and more. An earthquake shut-off valve can protect you and your family from the dangerous effects of gas leaks after an earthquake. Because they work automatically, they can stop everything from minor to major leaks from cracked or broken gas lines.
