Water Control Valve Installation in Austin, TX
The Fluid Meter Service Corporation offers affordable and reliable water control valve installation services for homes and businesses in greater Austin. The following is a list of steps we perform when installing a new valve at your location.
Step 1 - Get a New Valve
The first task is to buy a water control valve which is a facsimile of the valve that you're wanting to replace when it comes to type, dimensions, and thread. All fittings aren't the same, i.e., iron pipe fittings and compression fittings usually are not interchangeable.
Step 2 - Remove the Tap Supply Line From the Control Valve using the Wrench.
The principle of a control valve is to remove the piece following the valve from the remaining portion of the structure; so the entire supply of water has to be shut down for the short-term. This means we will need to drain some water out first. When the control valve is positioned in an underground store or on the first floor, we will need to drain out the water above. And if you've got a second floor, we will first go outside the house and open a tap outside, by doing this it can save your cabinetry and flooring from soaking. It's important that we have a look at the whole valve. If it's at the end of a row, there has to be a bendy supply line, which links the regulator to the control device. In case of compression control valve, we won’t need to change the supply pipes. We just need to unbolt the compression nut and then take out the existing valve.
Step 3 - Get Rid of the Valve
We remove the valve using a wrench. We may use two wrenches for bigger valve, one for holding the pipe and other for turning the valve. If you have ½ rigid copper supply pipes, we will want to have a compression fitting to repair the valve. But when you have threaded electrified iron, we must have an iron-pipe thread valve. We will look at the pipe we're stringing it off of and try not to twist the pipe. If it's twisted we have to put an additional wrench around the pipe. Then we would use the appropriate pipe joint compound to the pipe gears.
Step 4 - Install the New Valve
First, we will tighten the brand new valve using the wrench so it is appropriately snug. Then switch off new valve. Before turning the water back on, we will be sure that we've have turned off the drains which we opened before. In case of leaks inside the valve or air in the pipeline, it's possible that there's no water in the valve.
Step 5 - Reconnect the Supply Line
Mostly water supply lines do not involve pipe compound. If you have a flexible line, then we must look at the o-ring. Switch on the water valve and look for leakage again. We will tighten it if it's needed, then re-examine with foamy water.
