Saving time, reducing water disruption, and minimizing property damage save money for your waterworks utility. That savings can enable more crucial upgrades to be made - like adding more EZ Valves to keep the water flowing! 

Advantages of Insertion Valves 

Traditional methods of controlling water flow can be a really big endeavor.

On the jobsite with Team EJP installing AVT EZ Valves in Westfield, MA

For example, to repair one fire hydrant, you might have to shut off the water to an entire street - unless you’re using inline insertion valves, which are inserted without turning off the water in the first place. Or, in a large commercial building, troubleshooting a broken pipe on one floor might impact water to every unit in the building. On a residential street, the old main at your neighbor’s home breaks, and suddenly the whole street is without water while repairs are made. 

An insertion valve allows you to control water flow far more easily! It’s a versatile option to make your water distribution system easier to repair, divert, and maintain. The hassle involved with shutting off water, excavating and digging up lines, and shutting off water can - and does - lead to necessary repairs being postponed. 

Versatile Control Points 

Maintenance, repair, and extension of these systems is tough without versatile control points. But creating those control points is tough, too, if you use traditional methods - which includes shutting off water to the area where valves are being placed.

Water systems weren’t designed with the 2020s in mind, with increased construction, growing communities, and the need for additional control points. If you could design an ideal water system, where would YOU place the valves? With EZ Valve - you can answer that question and then go put the valves exactly where you need them, without shutting off water.  

Better Emergency Response

With insertion valves waiting to isolate sections of the water supply system, it’s quicker and easier to respond to emergencies. Shutting off water at a hyper-localized level enables a quick response that doesn’t create more problems around the community. 

Better Advance Planning 

Knowing that easy to use insertion valves are installed at key control points throughout your water system enables better planning. Scheduled maintenance and upgrades are quicker and easier to perform when water can be shut off only when and where you really need it to be - and keep the rest of the community’s water flowing!
