Burst Pipes

Can you turn your water off in an emergency?

#As a householder you need to know;

a) Where your stop tap is
b) How easy is it to access the stop tap
c) Are you physically able to close the stop tap - go on, try it today

Industry statistics provided by the Association of British Insurers show that claims for water damage resulting from leaks and burst pipes are increasing each year. £93 million was paid out by the industry in 2008. For this reason some insurers are placing excesses on their policies for water damage of around £250. Why not check your insurance policy and see if you have an excess for water damage.

What can we do to minimise water damage from leaking or burst pipes

Bristol Boiler company is a plumbing and heating company working within the Bristol area. We are also a Surestop Platinum Installer meaning we can offer you a product that provides an easy and instant way of turning your water off in an emergency - the Surestop switch.

How does it work

#We fit a valve into the water supply near to where the water enters the property. the valve is connected to the Surestop Switch by thin tubing. At the flick of a switch you can turn the water off. There are no electrics involved. It is powered by water pressure. The Surestop Switch is located in a convenient position; eg; above a worktop or at the front of a cupboard.

Think of it - no more climbing into cupboards or lying down in the footpath on a rainy day.

A testimonial from Miss M in Henleaze: "After having a new kitchen fitted I found that I could not reach the stop tap at the back of the cupboard as I am now disabled. the Surestop Switch sits neatly above my worktop and gives me peace of mind if I have an emergency. even the tradesmen use it when they want to turn the water off".

How much will it cost me?

A typical installation is £99.00 - not bad for peace of mind
