Water is leaking from the plumbing, areas of the piping have burst, and the stopcock to your plumbing is rusty and difficult to access and turn, even with the help of an adjustable wrench. Does this sound familiar? Each year, water leakages account for 2,000 to 20,000 gallons of water loss for every household. Instead of struggling with the stopcock, talk to a plumber about the option of installing a surestop switch, which can cut off all water supply to the plumbing of your home with just a single push.
