Piping and valves comprise a home’s plumbing system, so if a pipe were to burst, or if a valve were to stop functioning properly, you’d be left with a huge problem. Valves stop the flow of water, and need to be regularly maintained to ensure they continue to work as you need them to.

You don’t always want to be doing the clean up work after a pipe bursts, so there are some things you can do to keep damage to a minimum.
Do you know where to find your plumbing valves? They’re all throughout your water system – under your sinks, near your water heater, dishwasher and clothes washer, and behind your toilets. There’s also a valve on your main water line that shuts off your home’s water supply.
Because valves are like any other mechanical item, they can fail due to the corrosive nature of water. At Jones Services, we repair and replace all types of valves, and can even add them to your home if you need one.
