Isolation valves are vital for emergency plumbing situations when one appliance or water connection breaks.

They can reduce the risk of water damage by isolating the problem and preventing your household from losing water supply whilst the issue is being fixed.

How do they work?

As its name indicates, they isolate cold and hot water pipework by using taps on sinks, baths and basins as well as dishwashers, washing machines and other items connected to the water system.

Isolation valves are designed to isolate the root of the supply from the rest of the water appliances which saves work and time. Prevention is key to avoid damage. It is recommended that you check them on a regular basis.

Types of Isolation Valve

The types and sizes of isolation valves vary depending on their specific use. The most common one, for example, is the ball fix valve also known as quarter turn valve.

Other types include gate valves, stop tap valves, lever valves (another type of ball valve with a handle) and lockshield valves.

Other valves are designed to direct and control the flow of water by opening, closing or obstructing this flow. These designs can be found by the names of thermostatic radiator valves, ball cocks, float valves and pressure reducing valves.
