  • Earthquake Gas Shutoff Valves

    I live in an area that experiences large (for us) earthquakes about every 5 to 10 years. Large here averages 4-6 on the Richter scale. I was looking at the gas shutoff valves and found this company to make a pretty simple LP rated shutoff.

    Have you guys had any experience with this manufacturer? If you have, what can I expect, problem or maintenance-wise?

    They use to be blue color. Didnt know they were still in business. Very limited sizes and not universal.

    Try littler fire fighter or koso. Those are the 2 that I install and have the best stock, sizes and configurations.

    They all false trip. Had 3 from different makers all trip on a 3.5 we had located 6 miles away.

    phoebe it is

      I stick with Koso (California Valves) because they here a complete line of valves, including flanged valves (2-1/2"-8"), horizontal, vertical up and vertical down.

        Koso is tops in my book, with great selection (up to 8").
