EARTHQUAKE FACTS

Are You Ready for

THE BIG ONE!?


Fires raged, fueled by natural gas leaks, ignited by fallen power lines. Can it happen again? Yes!! Experts predict we are due!!

CALIFORNIA If you are reading this, . you probably live in a EARTHQUAKE HAZARD ZONE.

Did you know there are over 200 Earthquake Faults in Southern California that are capable of a 6.0 magnitude or greater earthquake? Most people in California live within 30 miles of these faults.

EARTHQUAKES, Natural or Propane Gas Leaks and Electrical Sparks are a LETHAL COMBINATION

Now you can help make our communities a safer place to live by being proactive and encouraging the installation of an EARTHQUAKE ACTIVATED GAS SHUT-OFF VALVE! Help save lives, property and mitigate damages caused by gas fires after a major earthquake.

Demonstrate Valve
Test Valve in Box: Cut the packaging straps on the valve base and meter cover. Remove gray trigger cover, leave trigger mounted in box for testing.

Trigger will come in the Off Position. Before resetting trigger, take the valve base and pull cable till it is fully extended, to the point where the red knob slightly moves. This will stretch the cable and remove any kinks.
Stand the trigger, still mounted inside the packaging box straight up on level surface, using built in level on trigger as a guide. Take valve base out of the box and check that there are no kinks or crucial bends in cable. You will find out the most difficult part of the installation will be the bends in the cable.

Testing the valve and trigger, continued: Reset Red Lever/Knob to the vertical position, turn counter clock-wise until it locks in place. Valve base should be open at this time. Move trigger as to modify a major earthquake. The valve base should trip and close, with significant movement, stopping the flow of gas. Reset the trigger, opening valve - Trip valve using emergency push off-button, black button located on top of the trigger. This should close the valve.

You are now ready for installation.

Installation Tips Continued


Disconnect valve T base from plunger for easier installation. (Disconnects at the bushing in 1 or larger valve base, leaving plunger in tact with the bushing.) Use the logic that the valve base has the same dimensions as a 90 degree elbow and does not have to be leveled or brace.

Forget it is a valve for now. Take into consideration the clearance on the top of the plunger as to insure the bend coming out is not too sharp to reduce tension.

About the Trigger, Cable and Valve Base Materials


Our product has a 30 Year manufacturers Warranty.
Trigger is made out of ABS Plastic, the strongest most durable plastic in the industry, (stronger and more durable than most metals). A ultra violet, (U.V.) protection is added to prevent fading and is rated at 75 years.

About the Trigger, Cable and Valve Base Materials continued:


Cable is a solid nickel plated strand cable, with a resin protection, to insure slick movement, then wrapped with a metal protection for durability and coated with our U.V. Protection Plastic.
If the cable cut intentionally or by accident the valve will shut-off letting you know the damage has occurred.

About the Trigger, Cable and Valve Base Materials continued:


Valve base is made out of brass for maximum durability and life span. Brass is approved for both gas and water. O rings are added to prevent against leakage. Sale the valve on the Technology and Emergency Push-Button off for any gas emergencies such as fires or repairs.

No tools needed to turn gas off or on, making the Gas Company shut off a thing of the past.
Cover snaps on and off for emergency access and is aesthetically appealing. Color blends with the gas meter.

Ordinances Mandating Earthquake Valve Installations:


Allstate Insurance currently mandates Earthquake Activated Gas Shut-Off Valves (EAGSV) in Earthquake Hazard Zones, such as, San Francisco, Mendocino, Lake, Napa, Sonoma, Humboldt, Marin, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Inyo, Mono, Contra Costa, Imperial, San Mateo, Alameda, Alpine, and Los Angeles cities. Additional counties that require the installation of EAGSV are Orange, San Diego, San Bernardino, Solano, Ventura, and Kern.

Ordinances Mandating Earthquake Valve Installations:


The City of Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Marin, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties mandate EAGSV installation on all new buildings, when pulling a building permit, or prior to the close of escrow, upon the transfer of ownership, or in any alteration of gas system. Yes, if you repair your roof, add on, remodel, change title to or sell property, you must have an Earthquake Activated Gas Shut-off Valve Installed.

Ordinances Mandating Earthquake Valve Installations:


The Countries of Japan, Iran and Turkey have more stringent mandates. Many other municipalities, states, and countries are considering similar mandates which will open up our market even more.
In summary, this is a mandated product, with mandates growing. Our product is the most reliable, user friendly and easiest to install in the industry today.
