What Is a Water Valve?

Water valves are undeniably a crucial part of your home’s plumbing system. A water valve is essentially a mechanical device that is installed into your home’s plumbing system. These devices allow you to quickly and easily adjust or stop the flow of water to a fixture or appliance when needed.


For homeowners and business owners, this gives you the ability to act quickly in an emergency plumbing situation and prevent or minimize further water damage from occurring. It’s important that your home’s water valves are regularly maintained and serviced to ensure that they are functioning properly.
